Video: Bowerbirds, Hiss Golden Messenger, Prypyat in Saxapahaw

Posted by on Wed, Sep 26, 2012 at 5:40 PM

Saturday night offered an evening of beautiful music at the Haw River Ballroom. As the chilly fall wind began to blow through Chatham County, Cup 22 was firing out hot cups of coffee to the mellow crowd. The show began with the two-piece Prypyat, featuring Duncan Webster (Hammer No More the Fingers) and Leah Gibson (Lost in the Trees, Bowerbirds). While Webster's finger picking is a delight to hear, it was Gibson's often overlooked cello work that seemed to fill the ballroom in the best of ways.

Hiss Golden Messenger followed with a self-proclaimed set of the "Jesus tunes"; no surprise, it was a solid solo performance. Later in the set he was joined by Christy Smith of The Tender Fruit and The Bowerbirds themselves on "Brother, Do You Know the Road?"

The Bowerbirds then took the stage to close out the evening. They ran through several songs off their acclaimed latest release The Clearing and debuted a new tune called "Island Dweller." Before closing the show, The Bowerbirds expressed their love for Saxapahaw and this time of year in North Carolina. Indeed, all elements added to another perfect evening in Saxapahaw.
