For the month of May, Margaret Darling (Formerly of The Seedy Seeds) will be in residence at the Southgate House Revival.
Darling has put together a band for the occasion, made up of vocalist Shannon Lewis and multi-instrumentalist Matt Mooney. “Matt actually played my very first ‘solo’ shows as my percussionist,” Darling recalled, “so it feels natural and familiar to have him involved again. And Shannon has been singing with me fairly regularly now for over a year. They’re both ridiculously talented, and really add so much shape to my songs.”
In addition to their Wednesday evening sets, Darling & company will be sharing the stage with a different artist each week, covering an entire album of their choice.
Wednesday, May 7: Feat. Jason Wells – Neil Young, Harvest
Wednesday, May 14: Feat. Billy Wallace – Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, Greatest Hits
Wednesday, May 21: Feat. Ashley Peacock – The Cranberries, No Need To Argue
Wednesday, May 28: Feat. Royal Holland – Belly, Star
“I wondered what we could do to make our residency special—something beyond just booking a guest each week and showing up to perform our catalog,” said Darling. “I immediately fell in love with the idea of collaborating with my friends to cover other musicians’ material and really present something fresh to punctuate our respective sets each week.”
While Darling is known for her contributions to The Seedy Seeds, she has been working to carve a niche of her own. With past performances at the Bunbury Music Festival, a song in the emerging documentary Making It, and her song “Farther Still” featured on Music for the Mountains 2, this talented singer-songwriter is positioning herself as a go-to for impactful original music.
