On September 17th the Bang on a Can All-Stars are headed to Krakow, Poland for the Sacrum Profanum Festival. The concert features the All-Stars with Lee Ranaldo (performing his work How Deep Are Rivers written for the band via the People’s Commissioning Fund); the All-Stars with Polish new jazz DJ Skalpel (playing Philip Glass’ early work Two Pages), and PCF-commissioned Field Recordings works by Richard Reed Parry, Alvin Lucier, Daniel Wohl and Dan Deacon.
On October 14th the All-Stars are joined by vocalists Katie Geissinger, Emily Eagan and Molly Quinn in a performance of Julia Wolfe’s Steel Hammer at the Brookfield Place Winter Garden in NYC. Inspired by Wolfe’s love for the music and lore of Appalachia, Steel Hammer is based on over 200 versions of the John Henry ballad, exploring the subject of human vs. machine in the quintessential American legend.
