Storyteller, songwriter, guitarist and voice-strumentalist Lawrence “Lipbone” Redding will appear at Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick on Saturday, September 9th at 7:30pm. Lipbone is most noted for his ability to vocally imitate trombones, trumpets, bass and percussion and incorporate them into live musical performances. His original songs effervesce with New Orleans jazz, swing, soul and funk.
Despite humble beginnings as a New York City subway singer, Lipbone has released 8 albums and over 20 live recordings and now performs in festivals, theaters and concert halls all across America and Europe. His music is rich and soulful because it comes from a life of travel and fascinating experiences.
A one-man orchestra with no electronic effects, his natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience event—as he weaves his stories with funky rhythms, catchy melodies, brash humor, soulful singing, and inventive guitar playing. You can hear a sample of his music here: vimeo.com/191295166
An engaging and entertaining show for all ages and musical tastes, Lipbone performances always have folks tapping, clapping and dancing the night away.
