Jed Wilson & Jacob Forbes

Saturday - January, 11 @ 6:00pm

Jed Wilson and drummer Jacob Forbes have previously collaborated in various creative trio settings. As a duo, Wilson and Forbes pare things down to their most essential, resulting in even more exploratory potential. Form and formlessness meet in an evening of improvisation and song deconstruction.

Wilson is a versatile performer, equally at home in the disparate worlds of jazz, free improvisation, and folk music. As an accompanist, Wilson is best known for a long-term collaboration with singer-songwriter Heather Masse, with whom he has toured widely (including making multiple appearances on NPR's A Prairie Home Companion). Additionally, he has performed with Aoife O'Donovan, Taylor O'Donnell, and Dominique Eade. His solo piano EP of original compositions and free improvisations, Nocturnes, is now available
