Latona's Thirst to Perform
At UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Oct. 3, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — Latona’s Thirst, a three-person acoustic-folk pop group based in the Twin Cities, will perform three free concerts at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Oct. 17-19. The shows will begin at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in The Cabin of Davies Center.
Latona’s Thirst creates “music with an artistic purpose,” according to Jennifer Schroerlucke, one of the identical twin sisters who formed the group in 1996. “We’ve been singing together for as long as I can remember,” she said. “I think it was just natural that writing together would follow.”
Classically trained, Jenn and Sarah Schroerlucke began mixing thoughtful lyrics with intricate harmonies to produce a unique style of writing that continues to define their music. The acoustic duo wrote and played together for two years, developing their sound and performance style and eventually opening for folk artist Janis Ian in the fall of 1998. The two sisters then joined forces with percussionist Chris Evans, incorporating his West African-styled drumming into their music.
Latona’s Thirst is touring in support of their first full-length album, “Whisper.”
The shows are open to all ages. Soft drinks, domestic and imported beer, wine coolers and popcorn will be sold. Proof of age is required for alcohol purchases.
The Cabin program is sponsored by the University Activities Commission of the UW-Eau Claire Student Senate.
