Paper Bird and Bombadil at Lee Street Friday

Paper Bird and Bombadil, two extremely artistic and creative bands, will play Lee Street theatre Oct. 10 at 7:30 p.m. The lobby and bar will open at 6:30 p.m., and doors open at 7 p.m. with Bombadil playing first at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 plus tax and are available at leestreet.org, 704-310-5507 or at the door on the night at 329 N. Lee St.

Paper Bird, from Colorado, features three female lead vocalists, Sarah Anderson, Genevieve Patterson and Carleigh Aikins. Together, they bring a unique and beautiful vocal presentation full of harmony and soul.
The ladies are backed by Mark Anderson (Sarah’s brother) on drums, Paul DeHaven on guitar, and Caleb Summerhill on guitar, banjo, and bass. Paper Bird is very much like a family; and not just because Mark and Sarah are siblings. “We’ve picked our family,” said DeHaven, “we’ve got love for each other and love for what we do. We have a reverence for what we do together and a mutual appreciation for each other.”

Bombadil, from Durham, features Daniel Michalak, Bryan Rahija, Stuart Robinson, and James Phillips, who each play a myriad of instruments as well as singing vocals. The combination is unique and compelling. Perhaps it could be described as alternative folk, if there was such a genre.

Adding to the eclectic mix is the fact that each of the members participates in the writing process. In fact, that is the theme that unites both Paper Bird and Bombadil. Both bands are very much a collective.
“We are all writing songs,” said Daniel Michalak of Bombadil. “Everybody has different ideas. I think in a group where there is more than one chief, it is really difficult to collaborate together. But we all love music and it’s what we want to do. We are all friends. And we are happy to kind of keep supporting each other and be a good sound board for each other.”
