August 29th come out to Conundrum for some folksy three part harmonies in a rock sandwich. Admission is $5 but I can pretty much guarantee a good time with a 90% chance of tomfoolery and the possibility of shenanigans.

Wooden Wand ~~~ Stefanie Bannister

Wooden Wand: Says Swans frontman and head of Young God Records Michael Gira, James Jackson Toth's "got that picaresque quality that Dylan had in his heyday, wherein the shambolic narrator undergoes various travails and epiphanies -- harrowing, bleak and darkly comical -- in the course of a narrative, then leaves you mystified, both smiling and sad."

Wooden Wand, a.k.a. singer-songwriter James Jackson Toth, has released a vast amount material under such collectives as Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice, Wooden Wand & the Sky High Band, and Wooden Wand & the Briarwood Virgins. Toth's style has drawn on a variety of both conventional and experimental folk, country and rock influences, including psych folk, acid folk, free folk, and indie. The heavily Neil Young and Crazy Horse-influenced "Briarwood", released in November 2011, is perhaps Toth's most lyrically accessible record to date.

"Briarwood" finds the New York native mining the remarkably fertile music scene in Birmingham, Alabama, including two members of the now-defunct Verbena -- Les Nuby, also the producer of "Briarwood", and Duquette Johnston -- members of Plate Six, Through the Sparks, and Delicate Cutters. Recent Wooden Wand tours have featured a stripped-down version of the full band, including Janet Simpson-Templin, who has also recorded with Jeffrey Lewis.

Stefanie Bannister recorded "I Admit I am Glad" with Harper Marchman-Jones in Charleston during the summer and fall of 2013. Her Bandcamp says that the album includes "almost every song I've ever written". Bannister's voice is silky smooth paired with a baritone ukulele that she completely owns playing several different ways throughout. Lyrically the album is cathartic staying close to home and relatable like an open book to her youth and coming of age experiences. Stylistically the songs sway from track to track with a different vibe, each song accented by changes of pace like a front porch conversation. Sometimes fast and excited and the next laid back and reminiscent.

TURKU In Concert for Two Nights!

Performing "300 Year Old Rock & Roll from the Cradle of Civilization" TURKU's saz, bass and layered percussion are the raw energy in their music. Farzad Farhangi's soaring, yet contemplative violin is the burning nuance swirling above that sea of churning rhythm.

TURKU formed in Columbia, SC in 1996, released its first album, "Alleys of Istanbul" in 1998, followed by "Nomads of the Silk Road" in 2000, and "Ozlem" in 2004." TURKU is working on its fourth album. TURKU has performed for audiences as large as 25,000 from San Francisco to New York City to Samarkand, Uzbekistan in Central Asia.

TURKU, Nomads of the Silk Road will perform vibrant selections from their past and upcoming recordings, featuring music from Turkish, Persian, Kurdish, Azeri, and neighboring cultures in a 2-night engagement at Conundrum Music Hall in West Columbia, South Carolina on September 19 & 20.
