I'm With Her and Darlingside will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented by BRIC in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
I’m With Her is a folk band rooted in a rare alchemy: three celebrated songwriters coming together to create music that reveals entirely new possibilities in their distinct and deep-seated talents. Since forming in 2014, Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan have imbued their songs with a sharply detailed lyricism, graceful musicianship, and—perhaps most powerfully—mesmerizing harmonies that endlessly reflect their extraordinary chemistry.
The "exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop" (NPR Music) of Darlingside will set the tone for an evening of exceptional musicianship and beautiful harmonies. The Boston-based quartet draws frequent comparisons to late-'60s era groups like Crosby, Stills & Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, and The Byrds, but their penchant for science fiction and speculative futurism counteracts any urge to pigeonhole their aesthetic as "retro."
