Overview

Overview Maarja Nuut

Haunting, eerie, and evocative, Maarja Nuut is a fiddler and singer from Northern Estonia.  Her music combines traditional dance tunes, songs, and stories with live electronics, creating a space where classical minimalism and experimental music meet the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe. Her work is often compared to composers such as Arvo Pärt, Philip Glass, and La Monte Young.  When performing, Maarja attempts to find a lively and relaxed state, like a cat poised to leap. She says this state "gives rise to music and makes me want to prolong being in the moment while altering ways of seeing, hearing and perceiving. It is always now and old tunes seem as if they were born a second ago”.  She tells us her intimate stories by using fiddles, her voice, and modern electronics.

Liz Downing and Allison Clendaniel open for the haunting and evocative Maarja Nuut with a new project, deconstructing lullabies and a new crankie presentation. They will be using their voices and banjo, flute and synthesizer with a tiny little guitar.
