Jim Woodring, Eyvind Kang, featuring Bill Frisell
After Eyvind Kang and one-of-a-kind cartoonist Jim Woodring join him in an opening performance, Bill Frisell presents his  Big Sur Quintet, fresh from a CD release. It’s as riveting a band as any working today – joining the guitarist are Jenny Scheinman on violin, Seattle-based Eyvind Kang on viola, Hank Roberts on cello, and Rudy Royston on drums. Playing Frisell’s entrancing compositions, they evoke the singular spacious beauty of the Southern California coastline. $20 general, $12 students/seniors (Presented by The University of Washington School of Music.)    [read more…]
