David Grisman Andy Statman Quartet - 4/10
at City Winery Chicago
David Grisman Andy Statman Quartet
Two of the most creative mandolin players on the contemporary scene, David Grisman and Andy Statman first explored their shared heritage with the 1995 CD Songs of Our Fathers, a moving compilation of traditional Jewish music. For this show, Jerry Garcia collaborator Grisman and Orthodox Jew Statman (who is also a world-class clarinetist) perform a live set ranging from liturgical melodies written hundreds of years ago to uplifting Klezmer-influenced dance music.
