Boston-based string band Joy Kills Sorrow will perform songs from their sophomore studio full-length album, “This Unknown Science,” at a concert later this month at The Palms, 13 Main St. in Winters. The band will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 25. Tickets are $15.
The early twenty-somethings comprising the band Joy Kills Sorrow deliver string-based music that mixes indie-rock and new folk. Joy Kills Sorrow straddles diverse genres while developing a distinct new sound. The quintet favors an uncalculated approach to songwriting, one that heavily relies on musical chemistry and improvisation.
“We like experimenting and stretching boundaries,” explains guitarist Matthew Arcara.
Vocalist Emma Beaton was nominated for “Traditional Vocalist of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards 2010. Bassist Bridget Kearney is the primary songwriter of the group. Filling out the band are Jacob Jolliff and Wesley Corbett.
