Berkeley Fellowship Open Mic featuring Heartroot
Heartroot is the musical manifestation of the soulful synergy between singer/songwriters Eric McEuen and Mindy Dillard. Both immigrated from dry lands of red rocks and mountain vistas (New Mexico and Utah respectively), lured to Portland’s moist creative ground to plant the seeds of a new life. The duo began singing together in 2009 after meeting over and over again as solo performers. In the Fall of 2010 the two ventured forth on a grassroots national tour. Heartroot’s music is a nourishing recipe concocted from Folk, Americana, Blues, Jazz, and musical theatre. The multi-instrumentalists use guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and rhythm instruments to serve up soul-seducing harmony and raw joy. Their uniquely voiced originals and re-imagined classics underscore sweet, sad and jubilant human truths. At a Maryland house concert, a new fan described Heartroot’s music as "The most honest and loving sounds I’ve had the privilege to hear.”
