WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Imagine what might happen if Tim Burton hijacked the Andrews Sisters en route to a Stephen Sondheim festival with The Beatles and Tom Lehrer in the sidecar; you'd get Seattle super-harmonizers Uncle Bonsai. With just three voices and an acoustic guitar, Uncle Bonsai presents an often dizzying vocal array of intricate harmony. Their songs, dark and hilarious at times, just as often delight with moments of great insight and beauty.

Now in its 36th year, this acoustic folk-pop trio tackles topics such as first-world problems, the creation of the universe, the afterlife, and, of course, holidays with the family. Join us as they debut songs from their latest album and ninth release, The Family Feast: The Study of the Human Condition, First World Problems, and the Lasting Physiological and Psychological Effects of Eating Our Young.
