Ameri-kinda alt everything duo

Flying SalviasLast glimpsed at Bird & Beckett in a Merle Haggard tribute with the Seducers a few months back, we’re beyond happy to bring Henry & Kathleen Salvia to the stage in our which way west? series for two sets of their own particular brand of mischief. 

The Flying Salvias have been called “Ameri-kinda Alt Everything” and “Alt Cabaret” — Henry is well known for his expressive piano style and impressive chops, and Kathleen’s voice can go from a whisper to a roar and back again with heartfelt emotional appeal. It’s said that their musical palette is large and many-colored. Their lyrics might seem whimsical, but don’t be fooled — there’s always an under-painting of deeper meaning. They take great pleasure in blurring all musical boundaries, giving any given song whatever touch of blues, country, jazz, tango, or rock ‘n roll strikes them as the thing to do. She’s a musical gadabout. He’s a musical sponge. They’re the Flying Salvias. Here’s a video of The Flying Salvias doing their sublime and charming roadkill tribute, “Sleepy Armadillo”
