Now celebrating its 36th year, Uncle Bonsai returns to The Towne Crier to celebrate the release of their latest CD, “The Family Feast: The Study of the Human Condition, First World Problems, and the Lasting Physiological and Psychological Effects of Eating Our Young.” Join the group as it explores all the familiar themes: first-world problems, the creation of the universe, the afterlife, and, of course, holidays with the family.

Imagine what might happen if Tim Burton hijacked the Andrews Sisters en route to a Stephen Sondheim festival with The Beatles and Tom Lehrer in the sidecar; you’d get Seattle super-harmonizers Uncle Bonsai. With just three voices and an acoustic guitar, Uncle Bonsai presents an often dizzying vocal array of intricate harmony. Their songs, dark and hilarious at times, just as often delight with moments of great insight and beauty.

Long one of the most respected songwriters on the club scene, Cliff Eberhardt's peers often mine his catalog for themselves. Cliff's song "Memphis" was included on “Cry Cry Cry” an album of collaborative covers by the "folk super-group" of the same name (comprised of Dar Williams, Lucy Kaplansky and Richard Shindell). Other performers who have recorded his songs include Richie Havens, Shawn Colvin, Russ Taff and Buffy Sainte Marie. A collection of his songs has been published in The Cliff Eberhardt Songbook (Cherry Lane Publishing)
