Ethel & Kaki King

Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career thus far, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn's Into The Wild to scoring -- and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double -- the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours.

 Described as "indefatigable and eclectic" (The New York Times) and "vital and brilliant" (The New Yorker), the string quartet ETHEL continues to be a pacesetter of post-classical music. Formed in 1998, the New York City-based ETHEL comprises Ralph Farris (viola), Dorothy Lawson (cello), Kip Jones (violin) and Tema Watstein (violin). Balancing their iconoclastic, explosive style with tender reverence for works of great beauty, ETHEL presents a program which delves energetically into the fallibility of human memory and the mutability of the past.
