Bill Frisell, one of the most sought-after innovators in contemporary guitar music, has convened a new ensemble consisting of acclaimed vocalist Petra Haden, cellist Hank Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist Luke Bergman to perform HARMONY, a sprawling and evocative trip through the landscape of American music of the last century. Interspersing re-arranged traditionals and popular favorites such as “Oh Shenandoah” and Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” with instrumentals reminiscent of Frisell’s work on his own Big Sur (2013), HARMONY links the past, present and future of American roots music.

“It’s hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.” – The New York Times
