Nov 14 - Bang on a Can and The Jewish Museum present: Theo Bleckmann

Theo Bleckmann Performs Hello Earth! - The Music of Kate Bush

Grammy nominated jazz singer and new music composer Theo Bleckmann takes on the mysterious songbook of British pop icon Kate Bush in a project that goes beyond re-creating her music to further realms of sound and interpretation. Joining him in this venture are long-time collaborator percussionist Ben Wittman, bassist Skuli Sverrisson, and keyboardist Henry Hey, along with special guest, multi-instrumentalist Caleb Burhans on viola, guitar, and laptop. This season’s Bang on a Can performances celebrate the power of artists voices, which resonates with themes in the Museum’s fall exhibitions.
