Get ready for four nights of eclectic, outstanding, fascinating contemporary music when Stave Sessions returns to Davis Square's Crystal Ballroom.
Every night offers something new: premieres, debuts, the return of a band we've only presented virtually. Electronics, effects, and sampled sound sit side by side with in-the-moment virtuosity. Explore identity with Nathalie Joachim, take an acoustic-electric tour of four centuries of guitar music with JIJI, hear toy pianos and real pianos played by Chromic Duo, and get ready for some heavy fusion grooves when Mark Lettieri Group closes the festival.
“Stave Sessions, presented by the Celebrity Series of Boston, is dedicated to sharing a diverse array of top-level musicians in a relaxed concert format.”ANNE GOLDBERG-BALDWIN I CARE IF YOU LISTEN
