If you’ve been reading this blog at all, you know we have a thing for the ladies of Winterbloom. We love each of them individually, but there’s something that happens when Natalia Zukerman, Anne Heaton, Antje Duvekot, and Meg Hutchinson are on the same stage swapping songs that goes beyond words. It just works. We were thrilled when the group went on their first tour last year, and saw both of their shows at Club Passim in December. They were the best shows we went to in 2009.
So it won’t come as any surprise to you when we say that the Winterbloom show at WUMB delivered like Dominos. The four ladies were in fine form, looking great, and entertaining a crowd of a few hundred festival goers. Because the fucking T broke down, we ended up missing the first few songs. But WUMB did mention they will reair the set, so check out their website for when that’s hitting the airwaves.
(I mean, how amazing are they? Really?!)
The ladies played a small set, but here’s what we got of it:
Maybe It’s Peace (Anne Heaton)
Four Stitches (Antje Duvekot)
Gas Station Roses (Natalia Zukerman)
Home (Meg Hutchinson)
Watching You Win (Anne Heaton)
We’d give you the highlights for us, but we’d just end up copying the whole set. Everything was perfect. The harmonies on “Home”, the wicked guitar on “Gas Station Roses”, the poetry of “Four Stitches”, or the message in “Maybe It’s Peace”—we loved everything about it.
The ladies will be going on tour again this winter, so keep checking here for tour dates as they’re posted.
