Lucio Menegon, aka Reverend Screaming Fingers is a guitarist, composer and sonic artist. Last spotted in Central PA playing bass for Canadian drummer Chris Cawthray during his burning set at the Maennerchor, his music ranges from intense free-improvisation to ethereal soundscape to more traditional, melodic song structure & composition and often in tandem with projected image and film.

He performs solo, in collaboration with interested artists and with the modern free improv/noise trio Prehistoric Horse. Based in NYC, he was a founding member of SF Bay Area bands The Bodice Rippers, Ramona the Pest, Zebu and curated the Ivy Room Hootenanny Creative Music series.

Expect brilliant electric improvisation and award-winning imagery ... visually spun by projectionist Caleb Smith AND Michael Robinson!

Eleanor Murray (Olympia, WA) & Lindefelt (Fredrik/The LK from Sweden)!!!

Moviate and Boat People proudly welcome... Lindefelt and Eleanor Murray and Co. back to Harrisburg, PA! This will be an Amazing night of music, sound and imagery...If you have been fortunate enough to see either of these incredible artists on previous visits than you know that this is going to be something magical!

Olympia, WA, warble-songbird Eleanor Murray weaves songs from ferns and yarn. Music that is like looking into a gli...ttery glass terrarium; each track is a miniature world of fog and trees. Her new release, “Oh Thunder” is an album of country-folk dreams to make you swoon for a forest. It pushes the boundaries of “folk,” eager to explore new and majestic territories. Eleanor’s music teeters between the careful crafting of a folk song to full band explosions, with drums, violin, bass, and electric guitar accompanying the ride. “It throws you through loops; one moment you think you have Eleanor Murray figured out, but then she shows you that she’s not an easy catch. You cannot draw a square around her and call it good – she is undefinable.” – Fensepost

Ola Lindefelt (1979) is a sound artist and musician working with resonant sculpture, sonic collage, phase composition and stream of consciousness
audio visualization.
He studied cognitive science (psychology, neuroscience, phonetics, culture theory, philosophy) at Linköping University, Sweden, and has practiced music and sound composition actively for 12 years. Working both in constellations (The LK, Fredrik) and as a solo artist, Lindefelt has produced and released records as well as toured in Sweden, Europe and the US. Also, besides running his own record label, he is involved in production work and has contributed composition, mixing, re-mixing and mastering to a number of artists and musicians.
The last years Lindefelt has focused more on conceptual composition and installation work. In recent work he has been involved in audiovisual collaborations, music for film and visualization of sound.

Come Out and wish them safe travels!!!

Spirit Family Reunion "100 Greenback Dollar Bills" from Possum Den Productions on Vimeo.

If you're a fan of Forest City, O'Death, The Goddamn Rattlesnake or any other band rooted in folk, bluegrass, country or any other Americana roots music you'll love this band. They have a way of taking you straight out of Brooklyn and bringing you right to Appalachia. Seeing Spirit Family Reunion live is like going on a sweet mini vacation to place where life is simple and sweet.

Here's what folks are sayin'...

Rabble-rousing Brooklyn folkies Spirit Family Reunion deliver foot-stomping, throaty, joyful songs. We defy you not to tap along. -Time Out New York

A young, brilliant roots band steeped in the best of Americana... heartbreaking and beautiful. -NBC

The songs exude a sense of fun and urgency that feels free of irony. Raw and raspy Appalachian folk-inspired vocals lead ofthe verses, and the whole band joins in for anthemic choruses that scream out for listener participation. -The Deli- New York

The most authentic slice of America I’ve had in forever. -Right Hear Media

Spirit Family Reunion is one of those bands who make you feel like you're part of something bigger when you see them play[...} their music really captures that raw feeling of being alive. -Brooklyn Ski Club

Also playing will be Hickory Hollow... Harrisburg's newest Old Timey dance band that will get your feet stompin' and your booty shakin' right from the start!!!

Doors @ 7:30
