Om Blessed Feathers
Amerikanske Blessed Feathers udgøres af parret Donivan Berube og Jacquelyn Beaupré, der således skriver og spiller alle duoens sange. Bandet debuterede i 2011 med albummet ”From The Mouths Of The Middle Class” og har siden da udgivet i alt fire album, hvoraf det stærkt anmelderroste “There Will Be No Sad Tomorrow” (2015) er det seneste. I 2013 kvittede Berube og Beaupré deres dagjobs for at tage på en endeløs turne, og siden dengang har det umage par levet som næsten hjemløse og uden en fast indkomst. Duoens musik afspejler medlemmernes nomadiske liv som lille turnerende band, med hvad dertil hører af uforudsigelige oplevelser og støvede landeveje – samtidig forholder foretagendet til de tanker, der følger i kølvandet på at udfordre hele sit religiøse grundlag og tage et definitivt opgør med selv samme; således brød Donivan Berube som 17-årig med Jehovas Vidner (og dermed hele sin familie), som han i sin opvækst var en del af.

Mini-interview med Blessed Feathers
What can the audience expect from the show?
“Sometimes we tour with a drummer and bigger band, or sometimes we tour as an acoustic duo. For these Denmark shows we’ll be touring as a trio, with lots of ambient guitar work and vocal harmony.”

What merch do you bring?
“We’ll have along a few special edition vinyl pressings of our past two records, available in Denmark for the first time.”

Which song do you prefer performing live?
“”Wide World” is the most fun to play. We do a bit of guitar looping that builds overtop of Jacquelyn’s rhythmic banjo picking.”

What is the best thing about being on tour?
“Some days you have to travel so far that the only sight you really get to see is a busy, ugly road. So the best part of touring becomes the food. We take suggestions from the people we stay with as to the best places to eat.”

What is the best thing about returning from a successful tour?
“Touring can be very fun, but it is also very stressful, especially when traveling internationally. There are several deadlines to be met every day, and worries such as flights and rental cars, where we will stay every night, and whether or not our gear will work. When we finally return home after these trips, a great burden is lifted, so that we can stop worrying and catch up on sleep.”

What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
“Upon returning from Denmark we will start recording the handful of songs that we’ve been working on all winter. It’s been almost a year since we finished the “No Sad” album, our latest. So the next record is well underway.”
