The Turtle Island Quartet

Nov 01, 2013 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Turtle Island Quartet is a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. The ensemble spans genres, including elements of folk, bluegrass, funk, and rock in their repertoire of inspired arrangements and original compositions. Joined by singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist, and actor Nellie McKay, they present the music of Billie Holiday, Billy Strayhorn, and the Weimar cabaret of the 1920s. Nellie's talents on piano, mallets, and ukulele combined with Turtle Island's famed innovative rhythmic techniques unleash an unprecedented range of possibilities. A healthy dose of original music, for which both Ms. McKay and the Turtle Island Quartet are renowned, round out this sweeping concert.
