Tickets are still on sale for all events.

802 TOUR...

is made up of fellow Vermont-to-New York transplants Nico Muhly, Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman), and Sam Amidon. The three have appeared in each other's shows, played on each other's records, and now they are heading on tour, alongside collaborators Oren Bloedow and Nadia Sirota. The performances will feature music from each of them, as well as some sneak previews of future collaborative schemes. Amidon will perform a set of folk ballads, accompanied by Bartlett and Muhly. The microphone will then be passed to Bartlett. Finally, the group will perform a selection of Muhly's compositions with violist Nadia, culminating in The Only Tune, a piece that Muhly wrote for Amidon, and that he, Amidon, Bartlett, and Nadia premiered last year at Carnegie Hall.
