The Cave Singers to rock the Treehouse

What would you get if you crossed The Head And The Heart with King Crimson?

Given the rising popularity of meditative, folky indie acts in the early 2000s, forming a twangy, rootsy folk trio was probably the least surprising move Derek Fudesco could have made. The former bassist and founding member of the successful indie rock group Pretty Girls Make Graves picked up an acoustic guitar and formed the Cave Singers following Pretty Girls’ demise in January 2007, teaming up with vocalist Pete Quirk and drummer Marty Lund.

The group will perform at the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7. The show is 21-and-older only. Tickets, $15 each, are on sale via www.treehousebainbridge.com.

The Cave Singers released two albums on both Matador and Jagjaguwar Records. Following those releases, they began work on their fifth album.

Rather than working with a record company, they opted to coordinate the project themselves and financed the recording through a crowdfunding campaign, which raised 116 percent of the group’s goal.

The album, “Banshee,” was released in February 2016.

Drawing from canonical folkies like Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie, and sounding more than a little like other early-2000s indie folk acts in Seattle (but with considerably more teeth and snarl), they have been a local favorite ever since.
