Orpheum Bell with special guest Jonas Friddle & the Majority

 

Americana/World/Alt-country phenoms Orpheum Bell return to LangLab!  Quickly becoming one of South Bend's favorite acts, Ann Arbor-based Orpheum Bell is an American band for sure, but with members originally from Ukraine, Holland and Armenia as well as the States they throw in influences from all those places’ musical styles as well as roaming up and down the years to encompass early jazz, tango and ragtime, not to mention folk and contemporary rock’n'roll.

Jonas Friddle’s arrangements and songwriting are heavily rooted in traditional American music. His passion for old-time style banjo from his native North Carolina leads to rhythmic and rolling compositions. At the same time this founder of The Barehand Jugband pulls from the raucous sounds of 1920’s blues and string bands for dance inspiring tunes. Friddle has received recognition as a songwriter, including Song of the Year in the John Lennon Songwriting Competition. He is joined by the Majority, a group of talented multi-instrumentalists that found each other at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. The full band includes drums, a string quartet and horns for a unique and huge sound. Following the example of new folk groups like Crooked Still, Abigail Washburn and Old Crow Medicine Show, Jonas Friddle and the Majority look to re-invent traditional songs.
