Birds of Chicago Land in Friday Harbor
A talented duo touted as “two of the most compelling new voices on the Americana music scene” by the Chicago Sun Times, performs at San Juan Community Theatre on Wednesday, July 13 at 7:30 p.m.
Allison Russell and JT Nero, who together make up Birds of Chicago, magically combine roots, gospel, folk and more with beautiful words that go together eloquently.
Birds of Chicago was born in 2012 when Nero began writing for his vocal star-muse, Russell. Both were accomplished singer/songwriters with projects of their own, Nero with JT and the Clouds and Russell with the acclaimed Canadian roots outfit Po’ Girl, but together there was an unmistakable chemistry. Nero had found the perfect voice for his rock and roll psalms. Russell moved from being a primary songwriter to an interpreter.
The duo recently completed a tour in the Netherlands and Belgium and will move on to Vancouver, B.C. after their Friday Harbor stop.
