Join us in Clapp Auditorium for a one-of-a-kind performance from Marissa Anderson
Doors open at 7pm. An Ensemble from the OFMS to start at 7:30 followed by headliner Marisa Anderson.
Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her deeply original work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country music, re-imagining the landscape of American music. The New Yorker calls Anderson ‘one of the most distinctive guitar players of her generation’, while NPR refers to her as among ‘this era’s most powerful players’ . Her work has been featured in Billboard, Rolling Stone, NPR, SPIN, Pitchfork, the BBC and The Wire. Festival appearances include Big Ears, Pitchfork Midwinter, Le Guess Who and the Copenhagen Jazz Festival. Her upcoming solo album, Still, Here, will be released September 23 on Thrill Jockey Records.
