Darlingside: Four Voices, One Mic, No Darlings
The arresting vocal style of Darlingside has launched the band into the upper echelons of indie baroque-folk. Appropriately for a group that started as an a capella quartet at Williams College, there’s no designated “lead singer;" everyone sings melodies, either in harmony or in unison. The Folk Alliance International named the band "2015 Artist of the Year." Harris Paseltiner, who plays cello and guitar in the group, joins host John Floridis to discuss the group's recent new directions.
