Johanna Warren Concert at CoSM
An intuitively self-taught guitarist, Johanna Warren channels powerful songs in weird time signatures and melancholic open tunings, weaving adept finger-picking with acrobatic vocal lines and carefully crafted poetry. Approaching music as a potent healing modality, Warren cultivates and honors the physically healing properties of sound and the spiritually healing powers of artistic expression. She has performed and recorded with Iron & Wine, Natalie Merchant, and Jesca Hoop, among others.

“Like [Elliott] Smith, she’s interested in the depths of human relationships and the forces that can poison them unseen. She doesn’t lament the dissolution of romances and friendships, but attacks it like a puzzle.” – Consequence of Sound
“…hauntingly sorrowful and beautifully optimistic” – Guild Guitars
“Perfect for woodland wanderings, summer storms, or midnight crystal scrying. ” – Pam Grossman, Phantasmaphile
Opening performance by Maitland
Years of brotherhood, self-proclaimed and genetic, have created the Indie/folk/rock band Maitland. Pulling influences from Bon Iver, Fleet Foxes, and woodsy expeditions, Maitland has transformed from a minimalist folk duo into a rock quartet. With the release of the band’s first album, “(from a cabin in the woods),” Josh Hines (vocals/guitar/songwriter), toured subway systems in the North East cities like Boston, Philadelphia, New York, etc. Once it was time to make more noise, Josh Hines invited his brother, Alex Hines (bass/vocals), Evan Moffitt (guitar), and Adam Shumski (drums) to the stage. Capitalizing on the versatility of the folk iterations, Maitland’s live performances express backwoods rustic elements paired with driving percussion and unforgettable melodies. Evan Moffitt creates a comfortable blanket of atmosphere to lay over Maitland’s three part harmonies, haunting falsettos, and dynamic percussion.
The CoSM Store and the Mushroom Cafe will be open.
Rooms are available for rent in Grey House, CoSM’s fully renovated Visionary Victorian guest house.
The artwork of Alex Grey & Allyson Grey plus many other visionary artists are on display in the guest house.
