Prepare to be mesmerized as classical music and hip-hop collide. For more than two decades, this charismatic, two-time Grammy-nominated duo has reconceptualized how a violin concert looks and sounds, boldly merging string arrangements with modern beats and vocals to create a world where Mozart, Marvin Gaye and Kendrick Lamar harmoniously coexist on one stage.
Joining Black Violin on the road this fall is Son Little.
The Black Violin V.I.P. Soundcheck Experience
This private pre-show experience includes access to view a portion of soundcheck, a moderated Q&A, photo opportunity with Kev and Wil, V.I.P. access to the merchandise booth and a 20% discount on any available item, a commemorative V.I.P laminate, and early entry to the venue.
Please note: The Black Violin V.I.P Experience upgrade does NOT include a ticket to the show. You must purchase a ticket separately in order to attend the V.I.P. experience and show.
Praised by American Songwriter as “one of the best songwriters working today,” Son Little conceived his latest album, Like Neptune, in a cabin overlooking the Delaware River in upstate New York. Trading in the existential dread permeating his previous work for unbridled joy and self-acceptance, Son Little transmutes the chronic pain of self-doubt into a beautiful and freeing opus about overcoming generational trauma. Hailed by Afropunk as “a stunning statement of purpose,” Like Neptune decorates the altar of the primordial blues and elevates the labor of healing to high art. “I’ve always felt as though I was making music because I had to, something inside compelled me. Fueled me,” Little shared. “This the first time in a long time I’m making music for the pure joy of creating.”
Son Little and his band — Little on vocals/guitar, Steve McKie on drums, and DeShawn Alexander on keys/bass — will tour North America for the first time in support of Like Neptune through November and December.
