1pm Liana Gabel
Liana is a singer/songwriter and tap-dancer from New York. Her sound is a striking amalgam of spectral vocal jazz, straight-to-the-gut Appalachian folk, urgent neo-soul, minimalist alternative pop, and experimental music. Her performance also highlights her artistry as a dancer; dance is absolutely indispensable to the music she makes, as anybody who has seen one of her intimate – but exciting – concerts can tell you, Gabel doesn’t need a drummer to drive her songs. Her tap dancing keeps the beat as well as any percussionist could.
