About the Event
The Franco-American duo, “The Whispering Tree”, will be the first program for this fall’s “Vital Connections Through Music” Series at Trinity Church.
“The Whispering Tree”includes singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour, who craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics, nature imagery, perspectives from travel, and a musicality that encompasses traditional folk, indie rock, classic rock, and 1960s pop and rock n’ roll. The twosome has garnered favorable comparisons to Cowboy Junkies, Over the Rhine and Aimee Mann.
NYC's The Deli magazine called The Whispering Tree "one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC." Other marquee career moments include official showcases at the Northeast and Southwest Regional Folk Alliance Conferences; being Kerrville New Folk finalists and Philadelphia Songwriter's Project winners and Eleanor and Elie having the honor to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's album, A More Perfect Union.
The Whispering Tree will be touring nationally and internationally and it is a treat to have them appear locally. Opening act will be Garin Greenholt. Doors open at 6:30!
