Lac La Belle


Lac La Belle is an acoustic duo that juxtaposes the early decades of recorded rural American music with decaying Rustbelt aesthetic. A tradition is re-imagined- or maybe just resumed- in the ‘future-rustic’ swirl of accordion, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, resonator guitar, and harmonizing vocals. The instrumentation echos another era, but is employed for a music of now. Their first release (with then bassist Joel Peterson) in 2009 was recorded by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes Read more on Last.fm
Lac La Belle is an acoustic duo that juxtaposes the early decades of recorded rural American music with decaying Rustbelt aesthetic. A tradition is re-imagined- or maybe just resumed- in the ‘future-rustic’ swirl of accordion, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, resonator guitar, and harmonizing vocals. The instrumentation echos another era, but is employed for a music of now. Their first release (with then bassist Joel Peterson) in 2009 was recorded by Jim Diamond (The White Stripes, Detroit Cobras, The Dirt Bombs), and cut entirely live in the studio, using only a few microphones. Its spare production captures the timeless quality of Lac La Belle’s sound. Their newest album, Bring on the Light, released August 2012, boast twelve original works and one traditional arrangement, performed on a wide variety of instruments from accordion to banjitar.

With intimate anecdotes alongside stories of their home town Detroit, Bring on the Light captures the drifting spirit of early America, as they stretch the boundaries of their genre. In the course of travel and advocacy work in Southern Appalachia, Jennie Knaggs mined folk music first hand from musicians of the region. She is the 2000 Hollerin' Champion of Wise Co., Virginia and Letcher Co., Kentucky, and she gracefully applies her traditional and classical techniques in the duo's original works with her soaring and yodeling vocals. Other projects include Odu Afrobeat Orchestra, Eastern influenced folk group Orpheum Bell, and the principal vocalist in Matthew Barney and Johnathan Bepler's upcoming film, "Ancient Evenings", to be released in theaters 2014.

Nick Schillace is recognized as a solo instrumentalist who has contributed to the American Primitive guitar canon with his releases Box Canyon (2005) and Landscape and People (2008). Raised by folk and blues enthusiasts, he acquired early training at Augusta Heritage in Elkins, West Virginia. Schillace draws on this background as he sings and plays banjo, mandolin and resonator guitar in Lac La Belle. Schillace has toured and performed with other fingerpicking greats, including Bert Jansch, Peter Lang, Jack Rose, Keenan Lawler, Eric Carbonara and Glenn Jones, and is considered an authority on early 20th century American fingerpicking guitar styles. http://www.laclabellemusic.com Read more on Last.fm.
