All-female quartet Misty River is well known for its compelling vocal harmony, award-winning songwriting and distinctive acoustic instrumentation of fiddle, guitar, banjo, accordion, ukulele and upright bass.
Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Jeff Douglas says, “When these four women weave their lovely harmonies, it is spine-tingling. Their music and relaxed style reaches out and touches audiences in a way that is uplifting even when a ballad brings a tear to the eye.”
Diane Schulstad of Victory Review writes: “From the moment of Misty River’s entrance, there was a warmth and friendship between the members of the band and the audience. The walloping charisma of each of the four women—their good humor and jocular stage patter, their laughter and kinship—was as effective in the back of the theater as it was for those in the front row.”
This concert marks the return of the indie band to Fresno for the first time since 2007. Misty River has since released its fifth CD, Stories. Exploring music hailing from the British Isles, China and throughout America, the members of Misty River revel in sharing the stories of their own lives as well as those of the characters in their songs. The band’s accordionist Dana Abel says, “our last performance at Roger Rocka’s Theater was very well-received, and we are happy finally to make it back.”
Misty River consists of Carol Harley of Vancouver, Washington on guitar and banjo; Chris Kokesh of Portland, Oregon on fiddle and guitar; Dana Abel of Eugene, Oregon on accordion and ukulele; and Laura Quigley of Portland, Oregon on acoustic bass.
