Chicken-Like Birds at The Dream Cafe
Saturday, July 21st
Doors 6pm Show 8pm
Chicken-Like Birds are the combination of Ari Lantela who is known for his refined-yet-sloppy blues guitar picking and Jasmin Frederickson holding it down on double bass. Along with a suitcase drum, upright bass and interesting harmonies, listeners will be treated to a tasty marriage of roots, blues, swing and ragtime that the Canadian Pacific Blues Society has called a “fantastic old- school acoustic experience.” Together they sing their original songs about adventure, independent women, cooking and the pair’s strange relationship. Slap in some theatrics, a few funny stories and some strangely endearing awkwardness and that’ll be the Birds.
“Singers Ari Lantela and Jasmin Frederickson both alternate and harmonize vocals to create a memorable EP that’s got a little of everything”
– Permanent Rain Press, referencing the 2017 EP Moving On
– “The pair’s harmonies and vocals vary from soulful to rough-edged, yet perfectly encompasses the emotionality of each individual song.”
Permanent Rain Press, referencing the 2016 album On the Dusty Trail
