Colin Easthope

Songwriter’s circle at Booksmyth Underground

Booksmyth Underground will present Colin Easthope, Brandon Hoffman and Rhoniel

On Friday August 16) Booksmyth Underground will present Colin Easthope, Brandon Hoffman and Rhoniel, as part of its new singer-songwriter series.

Colin Easthope has taken his music from solo-acoustic to full concept rock arrangements. His performing partner Brandon Hoffman is a well-versed multi-instrumentalist and producer working cross genre from bluegrass to electronica.

Easthope and Hoffman have been working together since 2010, when they collaborated on Colin’s debut, Of Myself and Others. Currently they are touring in support of Easthope’s third recording with Hoffman, Timothy Lake.

The tour features minimal arrangements of Easthope’s songs, as well as a handful of traditional and cover selections. Stripped-down the songs breath and flex of their own free will with Easthope taking the lead on vocals, guitar, and occasionally harmonica. Hoffman alternates between mandolin and double bass, singing synchronous harmonies . The subtle interplay between these two musicians reflects the joy and sorrow that comes when one’s heart takes the wheel. The effects will linger for days.

Nelson songstress Rhoniel will also perform bringing her eclectic mix of folk, beats and electronica to the stage.

As always, this Bookksmyth Underground event includes an open mic for five local songwriters to perform; so be sure to get into Booksmyth and sign up early.

Hosted by Booksmyth Underground’s Richard White, doors open at 7:30 p.m. Songwriters circle begins at 8 p.m. Admission is $7 to $10 sliding scale.

The Booksmyth Underground is located at 338 Baker Street.
