WALTON — The Whispering Tree, a duo, will open Music on the Delaware’s 2022-23 Coffeehouse season on Sunday, Sept. 18, with an in-person performance and livestream from 6-8 p.m.
According to a press release, named “one of the most talented duos to hit the stage in New York” by Deli Magazine, The Whispering Tree includes singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Bangbour. Together they create rich, immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and sweeping musicality.
The popular couple have appeared twice in the coffeehouse series, once live on stage at the Walton Theater Coffeehouse and in the summer of 2020, in a live streaming concert.
The duo met at music school in London. At the time, Kleiner was a singer-songwriter looking to collaborate, and Bangbour had a reputation as one of the most gifted musicians in the institution. At first, the duo had a group mindset, but slowly found the freedom to create as a duo, working together to blossom Eleanor’s song seedlings with a full range of harmonic, instrumental and arrangement possibilities. . The duo has since recorded several albums, including “Invisible Forces” and “Go Call the Captain.” Their recordings are available at www.thewhisperingtree.com.
Coffee concerts on the second floor of the Walton Theater are free, with coffee/tea and desserts provided. Donations are gratefully accepted.
