Five Letter Word

Folk, Bluegrass, Blues
Location: Portland

Five Letter Word's debut album takes its title from audiences’ oft-guessed origin of their band name. Such speculation is not that far afield, as members Audra Nemir (bass), Clara Baker (guitar, fiddle, banjo) and Leigh Jones (guitar, percussion)—with their harmony-driven, “siren song” folk and Americana—are vocally alluring yet known to provide some unexpected, dramatic songwriting twists and turns. Siren showcases their musical agility and vocal chemistry in witty, touching and insightful songs. For fans of The Wailin' Jennys, The Staves and The Wood Brothers, don’t miss their weeklong Al's Den residency featuring different guest artists each night from 7 to 10pm on February 3 through 9—free!
