Steven Lambke - Hummingbird

Wavelength's sixteenth anniversary festival was a little less adventurous than last year's sesquidecade spectacular. For the first time in recent memory, the festival settled into one home base for three nights and the programming eschewed retrospective turns for a future-focused weekend, daring audiences to invest in the musical here-and-now. The lone excursion away from The Garrison came with this afternoon all-ages show in Markham Village — a cozy up-close-and-personal affair that offered a chance to sit on the floor and listen. The field trip vibe was completed with a school bus ride that shuttled attendees away to the evening show. Like a Baby Eagle leaving the nest, Steven Lambke's recent album manifested under his given name. The delicately-hushed approach is the same, however, leading to the afternoon's quietest set, played to an attentive audience that settled in on the floor. For a good chunk of the set Lambke was joined by The Weather Station's Tamara Lindeman, giving them a chance to re-visit some of their duets. And on this one, Mika Posen (who'd play her own set right after) adds some violin as well.
