American Dreamer - An Exploration in Orchestral Folk Music
Presented By Farr Best Theater
American Dreamer is a folk ensemble from Austin, Texas, featuriing original folk music with rich string accompaniment, an original and lush sound they call ‘orchestral folk’.
“The Texas-based quintet cultivates a sense of warmth and wonder with their incredible blend of folk, orchestral, and popular stylings.” –Atwood Magazine
The ensemble is comprised of Sasha Klare-Ayvazian (vocals/guitar), Audrey Lee (violin),Courtney Castaneda (cello), Dana Wygmans (vocals, bass), and Rick Palese (drums).
American Dreamer strives to create a sound that, while steeped in both folk and classical music, is not precisely either, with the hope of exploring the space in between.
While their music is fundamentally simple, it unfolds into a multi-layered soundscape.
Beautifully blended strings coupled with honest lyrics and rich vocal harmonies provide listeners with a lot to sink their ears into.
