Jubilant Bridge Christmas ShowDec 22, 2016 | 1 comment
Intricate arrangements, harmonies “so tight, they pulse”, comic repartee, a repertoire ranging from critically-acclaimed originals and contemporary songs, to finger-dancing instrumentals and unexpected covers—these are the hallmarks of every Jubilant Bridge performance. The duo comes from a rich aural tradition but surprises audiences with counter melodies, changing time signatures, and well-chosen dissonance. Their instruments go beyond simple accompaniment; the arrangements and the songs themselves are meshed. They use the vocabulary, but step outside of the conventions, of folk, rock, and pop—not simply stitching together genres, but folding the seams under. Every song becomes their own.
