Stonebridge Concerts, under the #DreamsGoLive initiative, presents The Oh Hellos with The Gray Havens at 8 p.m. April 2 in Crawford Auditorium on the campus of Grove City College. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, Feb. 12.
Hailing from San Marcos, Texas, The Oh Hellos are an indie folk-rock group formed in 2011 by siblings Maggie and Tyler Heath. The band cites a range from of influences, from Fleet Foxes to Sufjan Stevens to the Muppets, bending and blending styles and genres into a unique mixture of eclectic music. They have released a self-titled EP and two full length albums, “Through the Deep, Dark Valley” and “Dear Wormwood” – a collection of songs inspired in part by C.S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters.” The Oh Hellos tour with an ensemble of old and new musician friends.
Opening act The Gray Havens is made up of husband and wife Dave and Licia Radford, a folk-pop duo whose unique artistry draws from such influences as C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien and Jonathan Edwards. Their debut full-length album, “Fire and Stone,” is being hailed as a “phenomenal recording” and reached the Top 10 on national mainstream Singer-Songwriter charts.
#DreamsGoLive is a campaign sponsored by Stonebridge Concerts, the long-standing concert-planning organization of Grove City College. Developed and launched solely by students in the summer of 2015, #DreamsGoLive aims to bring excellent and inspiring concert experiences to campus and cultivate a spirit of appreciation for creativity and the music community.
“Great live music must be a significant part of our Grove City College experience,” College President Paul McNulty ’80 said. “Johann Sebastian Bach observed, ‘Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.’ The Oh Hellos have certainly created ‘agreeable harmony’ by combining compelling thoughts with original and delightful music. I’m very thankful for the leadership of #DreamsGoLive and Stonebridge for this exciting initiative and the hope of fantastic concerts in the future.”
