Bovine Social Club has been lighting up audiences with their original music in listening rooms, famed coffee houses, theaters, and amphitheaters from Vermont to Virginia. Their unique blend of folk music is informed by Celtic, old time, Gospel, country, and bluegrass vocabularies.
They have also had a crush on the music of Tom Waits for years, nodding to his profound lyrics in nearly every one of their shows since 2012. The Bovines first performed their Waits re-creations at the legendary jazz haunt Deer Head Inn, selling out their Clap Hands show, which earned high praise.
Now they’re hitting the road to celebrate Waits’ perfect spectacle of love and misery, angst and serenity. The Bovines will creatively mine Waits poetry, lyrics, obscurities, and oddities, interpreting and performing them in pure Americana style.
