Glasser (aka Cameron Mesirow), known for her ethereal vocals and atmospheric electro-pop, will venture into fresh sonic territory with her new all-acoustic trio, which features multi-instrumentalist Robbie Lee and bassist Eleonore Oppenheim. They will be joined by big dog little dog, the new duo project of composer-violinist Jessie Montgomery (“daring…inventive” – New York Times; “turbulent, wildly colorful, exploding with life” – Washington Post), and the “quietly virtuosic” (New York Times) bassist and songwriter Eleonore Oppenheim. Each band will perform sets of their own material, then together they’ll premiere a new piece written for the 2018 Ecstatic Music Festival.
Curator’s Note from Judd Greenstein
Glasser is a stunning performer and a beautiful songwriter. Her new trio with Robbie Lee and Eleonore Oppenheim, two of the most innovative instrumentalists around, has been bringing her work into the acoustic realm, and it sounds completely fresh. Big dog little dog is Eleonore’s project with Jessie Montgomery, whose star (as a composer and violinist) is shining brighter by the day. The four musicians are going to come together to make something new, and I can’t wait to see the result.
Doors open at 6:45 pm.
