The War and Treaty

Saturday, March 31st

Doors open at 7:30pm, music starts at 8:00pm

The War and Treaty: the name itself represents the pull between trauma and tranquility; music inspired by darkness and despair that ultimately finds a higher spiritual purpose. We saw them at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival in January and it was amazing!

The War and Treaty’s music blends of roots, bluegrass, folk, gospel and soul. Their EP Down to the River boasts a sound that’s both stirring and sensual, driven by joy, determination and an unceasing upward gaze. The music is visceral but never morose, flush with emotion but void of despair… a style that touches on a variety of genres, but never finds itself confined to any one. The arrangements are uncluttered– harmonies, bass lines, guitar and mandolin licks, settle drum patterns and keyboards create an immensely moving soundscape — but the sentiments and emotions are fully realized and soar with a steady, chilling assurance. 

We hope you can join us for a night of amazing music!
