Composer and multi-instrumentalist Andrew Bird’s most recent album, Echolocations: River, was recorded solo, barefoot in the Los Angeles River.
Bird’s engaging, experimental approach to music is also evident in his Facebook Live series streaming from his living room with guests including Zach Galifianakis, Esperanza Spalding, and Chris Thile.
Now Bird changes venue again as he joins the National Symphony Orchestra and fellow folk-classical journeyman Gabriel Kahane at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, October 27th and 28th. These two nights in Washington mark the finale of this short 4-city tour for Bird.
For the Kennedy Center shows, principal Pops Conductor Steven Reineke leads Bird and Kahane with the NSO performing their music in an intimate orchestral experience. Kahane joins the orchestra for his Ambassador Suite, followed by Bird and the symphony performing his own music re-imagined by Kahane. The evening concludes with solo performances by these two acclaimed folk-rockers.
