Overview

Overview Anna & Elizabeth, Cleek Schrey, Liam Byrne

 

Using banjo, two voices, viola da gamba, fiddle, and pump organ, the quartet of Elizabeth LaPrelle, Anna Roberts-Gevalt, Cleek Schrey, and Liam Byrne will debut a program of quietly lush quartet compositions and new arrangements of ancient melodies.

 

Celebrated folk-minimalist duo Anna & Elizabeth (who helped create our beloved Bmore Crankie Fest!) formed this new quartet with Cleek Schrey and Liam Byrne to explore new contemporary avenues—a direction they have been steadily moving in for the past few years. Anna and Elizabeth are known for their deep studies of mountain ballads, coupled with forays into the avant garde — including music, performance, movement and visual art. Most recently, they have been taking inspiration from experimental music artists like Gavin Bryars, Laurie Anderson, Nick Cave, and Meredith Monk.

 

Arranging, performing, and improvising alongside Anna and Elizabeth is composer and violinist Cleek Schrey. Schrey explores idiosyncratic approaches to tuning and timing in his original compositions for violin, hardanger fiddle, and electronics. His work draws on the natural drones of acoustic instruments to create a sonic pallet. Cleek most recently performed at Creative Alliance alongside dancer Nic Gariess.

 

Rounding out the ensemble is celebrated viola da gamba musician Liam Byrne, who has been praised by The Times of London for his “nuanced and expressive stylish virtuosity.”  Although he performs on an instrument most often associated with early music, living composers — including Donnacha Dennehy, David Lang, Nico Muly and others — have been increasingly writing new works for him.
