Glorious Leader: Kyle Woolard on Sat. November 9th at 7 pm

"Awesome songwriter and performer... a totally self-effacing guy with a barely discernible ego despite his incredible talent.... a must see/ must listen." - Jim Karns on Kyle's facebook page.

 

A unique musician brings his solo project Glorious Leader to the Music Box in Craftsbury on Saturday, Nov. 9th at 7 PM.

 

Glorious Leader is the project of American musician, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Kyle Woolard. Written and recorded in his home in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, the music is an attempt at uncompromising honesty. It is a quest for simplicity. It is a celebration of humanity, of the far north, of the infinite shades between joy and sorrow, of wood stoves and whiteouts. The music is a reflection of the Northeast Kingdom — an aural representation of its slender dirt roads, sparkling lakes, peeling wooden farmsteads, maple sugaring houses, cold wilderness, warm people, and 6 to 8 months of snowfall.


Originally conceived as a collection of quiet acoustic songs, somewhere along the way it exploded into much more. Woolard’s arrangements grew to include strings, glockenspiels, his grandfather’s 1930s ukelele, synthesizers, and layers of vocal harmonies. At the core of the music is his trademark fingerpicking, however — a sound born from his childhood in the Appalachian mountains as well as his years spent making music in Iceland and Europe.

Woolard is also the leader of orchestral post-rock band The Anatomy of Frank, which seeks to record an album for and on every continent. He has toured over 2 dozen times in Europe and North America and has released 3 full-length albums. His debut EP as Glorious Leader will be released on January 14, 2020 and will be called 'My Kingdom.' Find him at: http://theanatomyoffrank.bandcamp.com.
