Andrew Bird

<b>“This is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist who devotes equal attention to his violin and guitar onstage, a voluble and arcane lyricist who whistles full solos with the blithe, pitch-perfect clarity of a damn angel’s piccolo.”</b> Pitchfork.com

With a distinctive sound that resists categorization, musical polymath Andrew Bird returns to offer an unforgettable display of his unique virtuosity. With songs ranging from riveting one-man-band electronic looping to collaborations with notable musicians including Fiona Apple and guitarist Blake Mills, the classically-trained violinist balances a swelling orchestral sound with the approachability of homespun Americana. Backed by a band, “one of indie rock’s most beguiling light touches” (<i>Rolling Stone</i>) offers his singular mix of violin, guitar, glockenspiel, vocals and uncannily accomplished whistling.
