Hardened and Tempered Concert at our Red Cloud Opera House

Saturday, September 15, 2018 - 7:30pm to 9:30pm
Red Cloud Opera House
413 North Webster Street
Red Cloud, NE 68970

Hardened and Tempered: hard enough to hold an edge; soft enough not to break. Austin-based duo Kristin Davidson and Red Cloud-native Carolyn Phillips live that balance and express it in their music. Their songs take root in the story-telling traditions of folk and country and flourish with textured melodies and harmonies, revealing an intimate look at the human condition from a perspective that the listener may not have previously considered. Hardened and Tempered’s debut album, The Trailer Sessions, produced by legendary producer Lloyd Maines, showcases “11 neatly wrapped songs driven by slick harmonies, impressive fingerpicking, and lovelorn tales,” writes The Austin Chronicle. For this show, Kristin and Carolyn will be joined by multi-instrumentalist Jane Gillman on guitar, octave mandolin, and harmonica.
