Amanda Ekery Group

January 12, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Amanda Ekery Group
“Vocalist and composer, Amanda Ekery collaborates with everyone, literally. Historians, artists, engineers, bakers, you name it. Amanda works with all to create projects that include everyone. She weaves her experience in underground rock, improvisatory creative music, research, and jazz into her compositions, workshops, and performances. Amanda will be performing new music from the soon to be released Some More Short Songs, a continuation of her album Some Short Songs. Amanda stated ‘when writing this album I wanted it to be fun! So, you’ll hear songs about hula-hoops, running out of peanut butter, and other about self-conscious clouds.’ Amanda will be joined by Andrew Boudreau (piano), Lim Yang (bass), Magdalena Abrego (guitar), and Allison Burik (alto/bass clarinet)” – from Facebook event page

Also featuring the Womni Jung Group
Womni Jung (voice), Nathan Reising (Alto Saxophone), Chase Morrin (Piano), Isaac Levien (Bass), Lesley Mok (Drums)
“Wonmi Jung, Singer Songwriter and Improviser from South Korea, coming from a diverse background in vocal jazz, pop, Korean folk, Brazilian music, visual art, poetry and theater, she has refined a unique approach to vocal improvisation and song interpretation. Believing improvisation is not just a way of art but a way of engaging with people and life in a deeper level, Jung has built her own performance ritual, making a song with given words by audiences. This special moment allows her and audiences to enter into the sea of life called comedy and drama.” – from IBeam event listing
