Marianne Dissard and Kath Bloom

Friday, Oct. 2nd @ New Haven's Cafe Nine:

Marianne Dissard
Kath Bloom

Kath Bloom is a folk, country, and avant-garde legend from CT. She has been making records since the late 70s, and has had her music featured in the movie Before Sunrise by Richard Linklater. Mark Kozelek and Devendra Banhart have covered her songs. She's released tons of well-written songs for so many years it's really too much to even name. She has over 15 albums released, and there's an upcoming tribute album to her to be released later this month.

Marianne Dissard is a French musician playing music somewhere between Americana and French pop. Her debut album "L'Entredeux" was just released, and produced by Calexico's Joey Burns. She'll be playing a HUGE number of shows this fall all throughout the country for her American tour.

Apparently, Marianne and Kath met when filmmaker Caveh Zahedi asked Marianne to cover one of Kath's songs for the Kath Bloom Tribute album featuring Devendra Barnard, Bill Calahan, Scout Niblett, Mark Kozelek... released earlier this year.
