The Egg Announces Three New Concerts
The Egg has announced three new concerts for the upcoming fall season.
Tickets for the new concerts are currently available exclusively to members of The Egg and will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday (June 9).
Here are the details:
LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III
With Suzzy Roche & Lucy Wainwright Roche
Saturday, October 28, 7:30pm
Loudon Wainwright III is by far and away the most enduring and candid of singer-songwriters with an uncanny ability write music that is both laugh-out-loud funny and with heart-wrenching honesty that can cut to the bone. With more than 25 albums to his credit, Wainwright will perform a career retrospective concert hot on the heels of his soon to be published memoir, “Liner Notes: On Parents & Children, Exes & Excess, Death & Decay & a Few of My Other Favorite Things.” In keeping with the spirit of the book’s title, the show will be opened by Suzzy Roche & Lucy Wainwright Roche, whose quirky songs, harmonies and humor pick up where the beloved folk trio The Roches left off.
Saturday, November 18, 7:30pm
Cellist Ashley Bathgate – of the Bang on a Can All-Stars – performs an entirely new series of reflections inspired by the Unaccompanied Cello Suites of J.S. Bach. The new work, titled “ASH,” incorporates extended performance techniques, live electronics and external media resulting in a radical deconstruction and re-imagination of the original music. Collectively forming a single, concert-length work, this multi-composer collaboration juxtaposes contemporary and historical practice to create a new recital experience – Bach Unwound.
JOHN McEUEN & THE STRING WIZARDS
Sunday, November 19, 3pm
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s famed banjoist John McEuen takes a look back at the group’s landmark album Will the Circle Be Unbroken that featured legends of bluegrass and country music – and considered one of the most important and influential American recordings of all time – with a multi-media show with archival photographs, film and behind-the-scenes stories interwoven with hot bluegrass and Dirt Band favorites with the String Wizards – Les Thompson (bass), John Cable (guitar) and Matt Cartsonis (mandola).
