Concert: Will Csorba, Dann Pell, Liz Meredith


Wednesday April 3rd 8pm $10 TICKETS

Will Csorba is a prolific young Texan of the resurgent American Primitive guitar school, already several albums and EPs deep. His work takes a cinematic approach to the discipline, frequently guiding the listener from its roots in old-time and blues through modern drone, raga, pastoral and experimental styles. Csorba plays close attention to compositional elements in his pieces, enhancing the idea of his music as a journey, but isn’t afraid to use improvisation as one of those elements; the songs rarely wind up where the listener expects, but whether it’s by intent or chance only Will can say.

Dann Pell is a guitarist, vocalist and percussionist based in Chester County, PA. His music embraces folk traditions; country-blues, jazz, chants/hymns/spirituals, and incorporates unique expansive rhythmic devices.

"Dann Pell 'Tertiary and Unseen' - solo live performances featuring dobro, six string, Telecaster, percussion, shruti, and musique concrete... I've worked with Dann before in more of a singer / songwriter format & his playing underneath the singing caught my ear as a very unique, personal & selfless approach to the instrument. From meditative sunrise sounds to percussive stormy seas, informed by the Great American Songbook, jazz drumming, Sacred Harp singing & Eastern drones... a personal fav of non-idiomatic guitar music." - Jason Meagher, Black Dirt Studios

Liz Meredith is a violist, violinist, improviser and composer from Baltimore, MD.
