Join singer-songwriter and composer HMS and the Elsa Nilsson & Jon Cowherd Duo at Caffe Vivaldi for a night of inspiring and innovative music.
HMS will be playing in support of her latest full length self-produced release Hummingbirds and Hearthstones, and she will be joined by an ensemble of excellent NYC based musicians: Tavo Carbone, Adele Mori, and Katrina Monta. Together they make a captivating chamber ensemble for a must-hear night of music. You can watch some footage of their last performance here.
Swedish-born flute player Elsa Nilsson’s music is profoundly playful and widely influenced. “The beauty of music is how it transcends cultural boundaries,” states Nilsson. She highlights this in her compositions by mixing cultural elements to create a sound that is distinctly her own. Nilsson has built a solid career and reputation upon her belief that all folk music (including jazz) has a common thread, and that by weaving those threads together, a deeper, more complete understanding among varying cultures can be reached.
Together, Nilsson and Kentucky-born, New Orleans-schooled, New York-based pianist Jon Cowherd weave a rich musical tapestry with inspiration from both of their diverse musical backgrounds.
