Yarrow returns to Vino Di Sedona on Sunday January 15, 7-10 PM. Yarrow was formed in 2011 when three musicians, Patty and Tom Hoisch and Patricia Fonseca, shared a desire to push the boundaries of the familiar. Recognizing how diversity in their backgrounds could allow their collaboration to become larger than the sum of its parts, they began to cross folk and rock music with classical music and poetry.
The result is a continually evolving mix of electric cello, acoustic guitar, djembe, harmonized vocals and poetic lyrics in the Indie genre, offering many original songs and a few familiar favorites with unexpected twists.
Songwriter and musician Patty Hoisch learned how to read and play music in early childhood and has been writing original music ever since she discovered how to break the rules. Her versatile voice, guitar playing and touching lyrics flow throughout Yarrow’s works.
Music has always been essential to Patricia Fonseca. She has a long history of singing and a rich imagination. Patricia brings her clear voice, instinctive harmonies, and percussion to the trio. Her literary background and poetic heart manifest in profoundly illustrative lyrics.
Cellist Tom Hoisch is currently a member of the Arizona Opera Orchestra, and has played in orchestras across the U.S., including the Nashville Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Denver Symphony, and Colorado Music Festival (Boulder). He has also performed as a soloist with three orchestras in California, as well as in Denver and Boston. Tom’s ability to blend his classical proficiency with electronic effects brings distinctive sounds, depth and color to the trio.
