Whispering Tree

The Cooper Memorial Library will host the international music duo The Whispering Tree live with a program of folk and rock music generously sponsored by the Friends of the Cooper Memorial Library on Thursday, February 13th, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on our second floor stage.

Called “one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC,” The Whispering Tree is consist of singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. Together, this Franco-American duo crafts richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality.

Their new CD, Invisible Forces, debuted at #1 on the folk DJ charts in September 2018, with four songs in the top 20. The album explores a deeply personal and political landscape, with themes of hope, despair and social consciousness.

Other career highlights include being Kerrville New Folk finalists; Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project winners; and Eleanor and Elie having the honor to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's album, A More Perfect Union. This is a free program and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
