Part of the 6th Annual
WOLFE ISLAND GARDEN PARTY
a celebration of Culture and Agriculture
June 8 – 18, 2023
Admission: $20 / PWYC
Songwriter/musician Sandy Bell has moved through a vibrant and textured musical constellation, playing most notably with the late but eternally brilliant Jeff Buckley as well as singing on the Bat for Lashes album “The Bride.” Bell’s debut solo album, “When I Leave Ohio,” was hailed by Stereo Embers Magazine as “…beautiful, resonant work that’s stark and painful—Bell’s songs have crushing, emotional exactitude that is nothing short of staggering.”
Her new album is titled “Entelechy.” Music journalist Alex Green found “Entelechy” to be “filled with stirring melancholy and musical grace,” an album that “explores the geometry of both musical form and sorrow, while the cathartic transmutation of grief into promise will take you somewhere between the worlds of Harry Nilsson and Kate Bush.”
Sandy Bell recently finished a tour Rachael Yamagata, and will be joined by her amazing “avant-folk” band, Matt Bauder, Jeff Hill, and Jeff Lipstein.
Bauder mainly plays the tenor saxophone, but is also an accomplished multi-instrumentalist often adding clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, guitar and electronics to his stage and recording arsenal. He has performed with many iconic figures in avant-garde and rock music including Anthony Braxton, Father John Misty, The Sam Roberts Band, Iron and Wine and Arcade Fire.
Jeff has performed and/or recorded with Elle King, Forro In the Dark, Bruce Springsteen, Kat Edmonson, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, Buster Poindexter, Linda Thompson, Bill Payne, Joan Baez, Brazilian Girls, Amy Helm, Kenny Roby, Vicentico, Marco Beneveto, Blondie, Rufus Wainwright, Wax Poetic, Paula Cole, Shivaree, Teddy Thompson, Bette Midler, Justin Bond, Victoria Williams, Cry Cry Cry, Shannon McNally, Harper Simon, Chris Stills, Amy Correia, Jesse Harris, Neal Casal, Elysian Fields, Shooter Jennings, Martha Wainwright, Gin Wigmore, Regina Spektor, Jim Campilongo, Erik Deutsch, David Mead, Marshall Crenshaw, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Joan As Policewoman, Iris Dement, Rosanne Cash, Page McConnell, Juliana Hatfield, Trey Anastasio, and many others.
Jeff Lipstein has played with Mercury Rev, David Johansen, Jane Siberry, Martha Wainwright, Clem Snide, The Wrens, Jack River, Chris Maxwell, Two Dark Birds, Ed Rogers, and many more.
