Big Ears Festival w/ Susanna feat. Giovanna Pessi & Frode Haltli, special guest Bonnie "Prince" Billy

“When Giovanna asked me to play some old songs, I didn’t hesitate,” Susanna explained in 2011. “It attracted me, because I like to do songs and put them in another setting than what you usually hear.” Giovanna is Giovanna Pessi, the Swiss-born baroque harpist who had steadily built a dual reputation as a refined interpreter of classical composers and an explorer also open to new music. At last, she had the opportunity to record her debut as a bandleader for the prestigious ECM, so she decided to crisscross her categorizations—to combine the old with the new and put them in conversation. The result, 2011’s 'If Grief Could Wait,' combined covers of Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake with interpretations of 17th-century Henry Purcell pieces and Susanna originals. “It’s a unique and audacious collaboration,” The Guardian raved, “that has the makings of an unlikely cross-genre hit.”

Six years later, Susanna and Pessi have revived and expanded the joint venture, recruiting new musicians and adding to their shared repertoire under the new name Go Dig My Grave. In November 2017, their new quartet—featuring accordion master Ida Hidle and Tuva Syvertsen on Hardanger fiddle, a traditional nine-stringed Scandinavian treasure—debuts at the esteemed Oslo World festival. Four months later, the ensemble arrives for its stateside premiere with assistance from Norwegian accordion player Frode Haltli and Kentucky multi-instrumentalist Cheyenne Mize. Mixing Shakespeare and Joy Division, Purcell and pop, this program dips into darkness to arrive in light, exquisitely expressed by the diaphanous union of Pessi’s harp and Susanna’s voice.

We're also thrilled to welcome back Kalispell, the project of Shane Leonard (of Field Report) who's in for a busy fall, with new records from both Field Report and Kalispell coming this year.

Maiden Radio in Detroit

Louisville, Kentucky's Maiden Radio is an acoustic trio that includes Cheyenne Mize, last seen at Trinosophes playing bass and fiddle with Will Oldham and Dawn McCarthy. She's joined by Julia Purcell and Joan Shelly on assorted strings and vocals. Lovely three-part harmony and a rustic, old-timey instrumental sound define the music, making the original music blend seamlessly with traditional songs. 

Detroit's Lac La Belle also creates original songs that sound like a continuation of various Americana traditions. Although the creative songwriting is the focus, this acoustic duo does justice to whatever roots music it tries its hand at. Featuring the exceptional singing of Jennie Knaggs and the stellar fingerpicking of Nick Schillace. Opening the show is a solo performance by ex-Detroiter roots music guy and longtime studio engineer Tim Pak.

Doors at 8 pm; $6 minimum donation.
