Release The Hounds:

An Evening with Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge | Aoife O'Donovan

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 • 8 PM

Smothers Theatre

Collectively having worked with such artists as Nels Cline, Fred Hersch, The Infinite Stringdusters, and Seldom Scene, jazz guitar prodigy Julian Lage and progressive bluegrass virtuoso Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers) join forces for a masterly acoustic performance "so extravagant and capacious that they bring flourishes to this music that it simply hasn't enjoyed before in this love letter to the acoustic guitar" (The New Yorker). They are joined by singer/songwriter Aoife O'Donovan, whose voice is "almost too gorgeous for its own good" (The Washington Post).

A night of intrepid songwriting and acoustic innovation, beginning with Aoife O'Donovan at center stage. O'Donovan draws from her catalogue of songs, played as she wrote them; with just her acoustic guitar and voice. Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge follow with their virtuosic duo performance, known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass, and jazz. The evening concludes with all three on stage together in an aural-hootenanny. lageeldridge.com and aoifeodonovan.com
