BEAVER CREEK — The final addition to the Vilar Performing Arts Center summer season has been announced, and it’s none other than indie folk band Lord Huron, which will be performing live on Saturday, July 15, at 8 p.m. as part of the summer series. Tickets are $55 and are available starting today at the Vilar Center box office, by calling 970-845-8497 or visiting http://www.vilarpac.org.
Lord Huron is an American indie folk band which was originally a musical and visual solo project by Michigan-native Ben Schneider. Lord Huron members now also include Mark Barry on percussion and vocals, Miguel Briseno on bass and percussion and Tom Renaud on guitar and vocals. After a pair of EPs, their critically acclaimed debut album “Lonesome Dreams” was released in 2012, followed by extensive touring both stateside and abroad.
“The folk-tinged band perfects the haunting, melancholy sound introduced on ‘Lonesome Dreams,’” said People Magazine. “It’s all seductively atmospheric.”
Recently, the band performed their single “Fool For Love” as well as “The World Ender” on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Their newest album, Strange Trails was written and produced by frontman Schneider and recorded at the band’s own Whispering Pines studio in Los Angeles.
Lord Huron’s latest album, “Strange Trails” continues to receive critical acclaim from music guru’s around the globe including Vice’s Creator’s Project who said “plenty of songwriters have literary ambitions but few have actualized them as fully as Lord Huron’s founding member, Ben Schneider, does on the band’s second full-length, Strange Trails.”
Schneider views his band’s lush, full sound as an extension of an entire aesthetic.
“We put a lot of emphasis on the visual aspect of what we do, and I think that comes from my background in the visual arts. It’s about creating this rich world that you can inhabit,” he said to Rolling Stone Magazine.
Lord Huron joins a robust and diverse summer lineup at the Vilar Center which includes Bruce Hornsby & the Noisemakers, The Wailers, Diana Krall, Trace Adkins, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, Grammy Award Winner Peter Frampton, Citizen Cope, Comedian David Spade, The Purple Xperience: Tribute to Prince and a surprise concert to be announced on July 17.
