Saxophonist Greg Osby, violinist and vocalist Petra Haden, bassist Thomas Morgan, violist Eyvind Kang, drummer Rudy Royston and acclaimed artist and animator Jim Woodring join the guitarist for an unforgettable evening of solos, duos, trios and full ensemble performances. This special night will feature combinations of artists that have never performed together before, making this show a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

 

About Bill Frisell

Behind guitarist Bill Frisell’s affable demeanor there’s a steely-willed artist whose creative ambitions span the continent. Since his early days on the Downtown Manhattan scene in the mid-1970s, when he became a key collaborator with John Zorn, Frisell has steadily expanded his sonic purview, staking a claim to an ever-greater range of media, material, and musical traditions. From Charles Ives and Aaron Copland to Buster Keaton and Bob Dylan, from urban thrash and American Songbook ballads to country blues and Nashville twang, Frisell distills the essence of the American experience.
