One of the best parts of our annual Garden Party is introducing our fans to local musicians and bands. We are excited to announce that Bellwether Bayou will be taking the stage on Saturday, April 2nd from 12-1pm, here at the Forklift!
Bellwether Bayou is the solo folk project of Laura Schwartz, a classically trained violinist who has been moving steadily in a more folksy direction since living in New Orleans, Ithaca, and Xi’an, China.
Now based here in Washington, D.C., Bellwether Bayou brings looping violin and soulful vocals together to create a modern take on classic folk sensibilities. The sound of Bellwether Bayou mixes original tunes with unexpected covers and new spins on old traditionals. Get a preview by listening to her music on Laura’s website.
Stay tuned as we introduce you to our partners and highlight new and exciting Garden Party details that you won’t want to miss!
