This is another of our highlights of the various artists that will be appearing at the Silopanna Music Festival on August 27th at the Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds.

OK, so this is the point where I have never heard of the national artists who will be headlining the Silopanna Music Festival. Today we look at Harper Blynn.  Not bad, what do you think?

From their biography, Harper Blynn is classic pop reimagined. The band’s instantly hummable music is remarkable not only for its breadth but also its intimacy, ranging from four-on-the-floor dance stompers to near-whispered pleas for understanding. Besides playing over 150 dates in 2010, the band also managed to release a self-produced eponymous EP that demonstrates the tremendous growth and confidence that a year on the road can provide. As inspiring as these recordings are, Harper Blynn effortlessly transcends them in concert, delivering three-part harmonies over a smartly-arranged blend of guitar, keyboards, bass and drums that is at once minimalistically modern and timelessly organic.

Sounds good to me!

So far, looks like a great lineup at the Silopanna Music Festival . Today, we looked at Harper Blynn, and have already seen the work of Fitz and the Tantrums, Trombone Shorty, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and of course Matt and Kim. Tomorrow we will peek at Chris Jacobs (of The Bridge). Then next week, we will take a look at some of the 14 local bands that you have come to know and love!
