Special visitors! Music with The Grant Wallace Band 6:30 - 8 PM
Grant Wallace Band is a trio of composer-performers weaving a diaphanous sound from threads of new music, modern jazz, and old-time folk styles. Composing through a uniquely collaborative process, Ben Hjertmann (voice/pedal steel), Chris Fisher-Lochhead (viola/banjo), and Luke Gullickson (piano/guitar) also draw inspiration from outsider artists including the band’s namesake. The New York Times described the group’s unique sound as “spidery original bluegrass,” and Time Out Chicago opined, “we love the weird, rhythmically complex landscape of proto-bluegrass [GWB] have created.” In 2014 GWB created a maritime mini-musical, Fo’c’s’le, in collaboration with Ensemble Dal Niente; in 2016 they wrote and performed a dramatic song cycle, The Magnificent Pretty Boy, with Houston Grand Opera. In December 2017 the group released their second full-length album, By This Time Tomorrow ("Has instant classic written all over it" -- Beach Sloth). For their third album and summer 2018 tour, GWB is joined by bassist/composer Ross Gallagher. LISTEN TO THEM HERE
