The 802 Tour

Nico Muhly, Sam Amidon, Doveman, and Nadia Sirota with the Laurels String Quartet, US Exclusive Engagement

Part of 2011-2012 Performing Arts Season

“Raw folk and electronically assisted sonic richness, in an improbably captivating mix.” —The Oregonian

This groundbreaking collective of composers/performers (and old Vermont friends) blurs the lines between contemporary classical, deeply rooted folk, and modern pop. The evening features Nico Muhly, perhaps the most renowned composer of his generation; avant-folkie Sam Amidon; melancholic/ambient singer-songwriter Thomas “Doveman” Bartlett; and violist supreme Nadia Sirota, backed by the Twin Cities’ own Laurels String Quartet. Collaborators, kindred spirits, drinking buddies … the program includes shared music, inspired solos, and new musical ideas floated in an air of sonic camaraderie and landed with astounding ability.

Presented in association with Kate Nordstrum Projects.
