Silo: Live October 13 at The Blind Pig
Out of the Louisiana Delta, these two ladies bring a new folk sound with accordion, banjo, and percussion. Silo is a duet of songwriters, Reneé Arozqueta and Jennifer Jeffers, who infuse a high energy show with harmonies, multiple instruments, and sweetness.
Reneé and Jenn met while both were teachers in Louisiana and from their musical and friendship chemistry the sound of Silo was born. Reneé, a native of Pensacola, Florida had toured and produced music extensively with other projects such as Spider+Octopus and Bobe Street Band. Jenn moved a little farther south from her home state of Arkansas with performance experience and a gusto for the banjo in her hand.
Silo started building momentum playing shows in and around the Mississippi River delta—primarily in Vicksburg, Natchez, and Jackson, Mississippi. Silo has played popular local events such as Vicksburg Riverfest and the weekend opening of The Great Gatsby at the Strand Theatre. Silo toured on their new album, Tall Tales, earlier this year from New Orleans to Natchez. Silo invites you to plug into their music and find the warm velvety center of harmonies and instrumentation that these two old-soul singers have crafted.
