“O’Donovan pushes her genre’s often confining envelope into brave, exciting territory.” American Songwriter
“[Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge] stake out a common ground where Lage’s jazz vocabulary and Eldridge’s bluegrass vocabulary can meet, mix and fuel improvisations.” The Washington Post
Representing a new generation of Americana music, Julian Lage, Chris Eldridge and Aoife O’Donovan join forces for a night of unflinching songwriting and acoustic innovation. A superlative duo known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass and jazz, Lage and Eldridge turn their supreme musical technique into a love letter to the acoustic guitar. Folk-pop singer Aoife O’Donovan, who has gained wide recognition through an impressive list of projects including The Goat Rodeo Sessions (with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile), performs from her catalog, her honeyed voice “almost too gorgeous for its own good” (The Washington Post).
