SLCene Suggests: Kris Orlowski at Kilby Court

by on March 19, 2013

KRIS ORLOWSKI, KILBY COURT, Wednesday, March 20, 7 p.m., $8

You might take a look at that photo of Kris Orlowski and thing the troubadour from the Pacific Northwest is another in a long line of simple folkie songwriters. But listen to his album Pieces We Are, and you quickly realize there is a lot more going on than simply a man crooning to an acoustic guitar. Some tunes are fleshed out with the four-piece band that will join him on his current tour, while others feature a 17-piece orchestra that give Orlowski’s music a heft you’d hardly define as “folk.” His winning baritone goes a long way toward that end as well. The Last Bison headlines the show.
