Tribeca Spotlight “Next Voice You Hear” Presents
Friday, March 11, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.; $15
Focusing on songs collected by folklorist and field recording pioneer Alan Lomax, this collaborator brings together some of North America’s most distinctive and creative roots musicians to revive, recycle and re-imagine traditional music. The repertoire includes Bahamian sea chanties, African-American acappella singing from the Georgia Sea Islands, ancient Appalachian ballads, fiddle tunes and work songs collected from both well-known musicians and everyday folk: sea captains, cowhands, fishermen, prisoners and homemakers. Collaborators include Grammy-winning singer Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, Margaret Glaspy, Moira Smiley, Brittany Haas, Julian Lage, Eli West, and more. The new album is out now on Borealis Records.
