Jonathan Wilson’s career is rooted in the Southern California music scene, where crisp instrumental work and fluid melodies rule. A multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter, Wilson also has made his mark as a producer and sideman by working with musicians as diverse as Roger Waters, Father John Misty, and Erykah Badu. His latest album, Rare Birds, eloquently explores a wide range of emotions, featuring his distinctive vocals and colored by lush instrumentation.
This special double bill looks back to Scottish and Canadian roots while creating a progressive and thrilling new brand of music. Karine Polwart is a multi-award–winning Scottish songwriter, spoken-word performer, and essayist. She performs traditional music, as well as her own strikingly original, deeply personal, and socially penetrating songs. Kaia Kater was born of African Caribbean descent in Quebec. Her marvelously original music is influenced by the Canadian folk music of her parents and the years she studied and performed Appalachian music in West Virginia.
Please note that this concert now begins at 7:30 PM. Tickets that list the original time (10 PM) will still be honored.
