THE NOVEL IDEAS - Sisters Folk Festival Free Concert Series
The band features the voices of three different songwriters, with a blend of pastoral, harmony driven, and plaintive Americana. They spent the past year playing shows in support of their debut album, “Home,” which was recorded in a barn in Jaffrey, NH. In June 2014 they released a 10″ single “Lost on the Road”, featuring two new songs and marking the band’s first effort as a five piece.
Homesickness, heartbreak, and longing: The Novel Ideas sing about familiar themes with a particular beauty you don’t find just anywhere. The Boston-based quintet, featuring Daniel Radin, Sarah Grella, Danny Hoshino, James Parkington, and Nick Mitchell, combines the best elements of heartfelt songwriting with gorgeous instrumentation.
