Following an opening set of folk-inspired music by Shawn Jaeger and Donnacha Dennehy, Contemporaneous will play with “pop polymath” Jherek Bischoff in a full set of his fresh, energetic music, including world premiere works and arrangements.
When Jherek Bischoff is not playing bass on tour with Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra, he is writing, performing, and recording his own orchestral and chamber music. This show will feature Jherek performing and guest appearances by singer Jen Goma (of People Get Ready) and drummer Greg Saunier (of Deerhoof).
Both Shawn Jaeger and Donnacha Dennehy take musical inspiration from folk traditions of their homes and string together texts from traditional songs in powerful settings that explore love and death. Featuring Contemporaneous soprano Lucy Dhegrae MM '12, the roots of Jaeger’s Letters Made with Gold
come from Appalachian folk music and Old Regular Baptist hymnody. Dennehy’s love for the sean-nós tradition of Ireland comes through in Grá agus Bás
(translated: Love and Death), which will feature Contemporaneous vocalist Finnegan Shanahan '14.
