“The Ladles” will Share Sophisticated Arrangements and Three-Part Harmonies
The Rockwell Museum’s 2020 “Concert in the Gallery” series will kick off Friday, January 17 with a performance by “The Ladles,” a Boston-based trio that brings an amalgamation of its members’ diverse histories and influences. Their sound fuses swing, old-time, folk, pop and contemporary choral music into a sound all their own. With sophisticated arrangements, they create a dreamy, otherworldly atmosphere that draws audiences in and demands attention. They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls. The Ladles are Katie Martucci, Caroline Kuhn and Lucia Pontoniere.
Time: 7:15 p.m. (Reception)
8 p.m. (Performance)
Date: Friday, January 17
Location: The Rockwell Museum
111 Cedar Street, Corning, NY 14830
Reservations are required by 5 p.m. January 16.
The Ladles met in the fall of 2014 as incoming students to the New England Conservatory. The only three women in the undergraduate Contemporary Improvisation program, they banded together quickly. Hours spent singing and playing together in the NEC dormitories led to a house concert at a friend’s house. Soon, the trio was performing regularly around Boston as “The Ladles” (a name fashioned after an altered “ladies room” sign in Jordan Hall). Within a year, The Ladles had recorded their debut EP and were touring the Northeast. 2019 marked the release of the group’s first full-length album, “The Line.”
The Rockwell’s Concert in the Gallery series features Americana musical performances in the intimate, seated setting of the “Visions of Americana” gallery. Attendees enjoy refreshments included with their ticket at the pre-concert reception.
The series is FREE to members, $10 for not-yet-members, and $5 for students.
