Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine @ Off Broadway - 12.09.10

Even before opening for Jill Andrews, local songwriter Cassie Morgan (aided by Beth Bombara a.k.a. the Lonely Pine) had already shared the stage this year with the likes of Mumford & Sons, Rhett Miller and Jessica Lea Mayfield. Seemingly, 2010 has been pretty good for the local act. Evoking the feeling of a cold winter night, Morgan’s sets fall somewhere between melancholy and dreamlike with slowly delivered harmonies, reserved strumming/plucking and Bombara sparsely accentuating with a tambourine shuffle or xylophone ding.

Random Notes:

-Morgan played “Fields of Snow,” her contribution to the Bert Dax Christmas compilation, which is possibly the most upbeat song of hers that I can recall. I wouldn’t mind hearing some more “fun” songs from her in the future to help mix up the tempo.

-Picked up a copy of Beth Bombara’s recently released album, Wish I Were You. Best packaged record album I own.

-The usual duo was joined by a banjo player for a few songs, making Bombara a “less Lonely Pine” for the time being.

-For a folk duo, they were strangely more difficult to shoot than you’d expect that evening. Usual shooting angles seemed to be cut off by extra microphone stands or additional instruments. Even funnier, my favorite angle (left of the microphone up towards the right side of the singer’s face) was obscured by Morgan’s long hair.
