Sean Bruce And Mandolin Orange House Concert

Sean Bruce (Youtube)

Lafayette has great ‘local’ talent, and I witnessed that last night during a “House Concert” featuring Sean Bruce and Mandolin Orange…

House concerts are a grass-roots way of spreading the word about new artists and/or ideas, as some of the bands have pet projects in the non-profit realm, or are activists for some cause.  Last night, it was all about the music.  And the gumbo.

Mandolin Orange, from North Carolina, was the “reason” for the house concert, as they are routing through the area.  They were to play in Baton Rouge tonight, but the show was cancelled due to weather concerns.

Their sound has a Bluegrass feel, their lyrics show old souls, and their demeanor will drive your worries away.  Mandolin Orange is making a name for themselves, even making NPR  Music’s choice as one of the top 10 Folk/Americana albums of 2013 for “This Side of Jordan”.

Sean Bruce and Stevie Billeaud (of Royal Teeth) opened the show with some of Sean’s music.  Stevie’s guitar and synth laid a background for Sean to paint upon, then Sean’s lyrics invited us in and held us hostage, if only for a little while, allowing us to forget our troubles; the man’s songwriting is amazing.  Here is a shaky, low-quality, crappy video that I shot with my phone:
