Record Release Party! - 7:30 FREE
37 W 17th St.
New York, NY 10011

The Brooklyn-based folk band Holler is celebrating the release of their third album, A Light That Shines with a concert on April 7th, 2016 at 7:30pm. The free show will be held at CounterEvolution at 37 West 17th Street in Manhattan. 


The sounds of Holler are firmly rooted in the folk music traditions of Appalachia. Playing both original songs and traditional favorites, Holler takes you on a musical journey across America from north to way down south. Band members Rachael Benjamin and Beth Soleimany sing together in harmony and accompany one another on guitar, autoharp, and upright bass. Joined by veteran New York musicians Doug Pierson (guitar) and Rob Meador (mandolin), their latest album  is filled with original songs that ring with the full range of human experience, from death and loss to addiction to the light that shines within each of us no matter where we live or what trials we face.


A staple at Brooklyn venues like Pete’s Candy Store, the family-friendly ensemble has also played local schools, colleges, and churches, and has toured the south and midwest, including playing at eastern Kentucky’s Covered Bridge Festival. At CounterEvolution they will be joined for an evening of moving and deeply personal songs by supporting acts singer/songwriter and composer Rob Kendt, and singer/songwriter Emma Pierson.
