Singer-songwriters Meg Braun and Ari Scott shared a set at Cafe 111 in Brooklyn last night as part of promoter Dan Herman’s Radio Crystal Blue showcase. The two have very differerent voices, but blended surprisingly well when they accompanied each other. Highlights of the set were Braun’s “Ohio Wind,” a fine folk-pop number, and Scott’s “Fortunate One,” a ghostly electric-piano waltz reminiscent of Jefferson Airplane’s “Lather.”

It was great to hear Meg do her own material after having worked with her as a backup singer. She combines very strong pipes with a fluttery Judy Collins vibrato, while Scott’s more conversational, vibrato-free style is perfect for her quirky, sometimes humorous, often haunting material.
