Composer/Songwriter Gabriel Kahane: Magnificent Bird

May 22, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

“One of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day.” – The New Yorker

Kerrytown Concert House is thrilled to announce pianist, composer, singer/songwriter and recording artist Gabriel Kahane’s return to its stage, the debut venue of his strong Ann Arbor footprint (including performances at The Ark & UMS). With commissions by Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Kronos Quartet; with performances all over the world including the Library of Congress and Off Broadway; and with recording collaborations with internationally-recognized artists such as Brad Meldau and Rufus Wainwright this performance is a rare chance to experience Kahane’s brilliant solo artistry in KCH’s intimate setting. This special event celebrates his latest LP release for Nonesuch Records entitled Magnificent Bird, a project of songs written in self-imposed isolation—a full year off the internet—with the help of a dozen colleagues, including Andrew Bird, Chris Thile, Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw, whose long-distance contributions were made possible, paradoxically, through the very technology he had shunned. Kahane’s music defies genre boundaries, drawing not only from classical music and musical theatre, but also from pop, folk, indie, and jazz traditions. An excellent fit for Kerrytown Concert House – a venue that honors excellence in a kaleidoscope of musical genres!
