SOCIETY OF BROKEN SOULS w/special guest MOLLY DURNIN

Doors 6:30pm | Show 7pm | $5/advance, $7/door

SOCIETY OF BROKEN SOULS, the Folk Noir songwriting duo of multi-instrumentalists Dennis James and Lauryn Shapter, never expected the name of their band to become such a lightning rod. It just seemed a fitting name, one that resonated deeply with each of them, as well as with their most dedicated fans. But a lightning rod it seems to have become. Called “a songwriting powerhouse” (Ben Kieffer, Iowa Public Radio), the duo performs their own brand of American roots music. While they have their roots as an acoustic duo, their live show has blossomed into an expansive setting for weathered characters, tough topics, and quiet beauty. Fiddle, drums, keyboard, and acoustic and electric guitars, in intricately woven and varied arrangements, create a wide, dynamic palette. As they take turns singing lead and harmony, the pair paints a vast emotional landscape, ranging from the rebellious and jubilant to the introspective and heartfelt. 

MOLLY DURNIN is an impassioned alternative singer/songwriter who has rapidly emerged from the talented 518 music scene of Upstate New York. Her sultry, uninhibited vocals, percussive acoustic guitar style and sophisticated lyrics invariably excite and captivate audiences. Molly's passionate devotion to her music and fans has driven her down the east coast with a nonstop show schedule. She presently divides her time between New York and South Carolina.
