For a decade, Aoife O’Donovan wielded her instrument with tensile strength as the captivating lead singer of the Boston-based progressive string band Crooked Still. Celebrity Series audiences will recall her turn as a featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions concert with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile.
O’Donovan is joined on this double-bill by Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge. Though still in his twenties, Lage has already enjoyed a remarkable, genre-crossing career. As the New York Times has put it, Lage is an artist whose roots are "tangled in jazz, folk, classical and country music." Guitarist Chris Eldridge, a founding member of Punch Brothers, has been at the vanguard of acoustic music for much of the past decade.
