Artist and musician Lonnie Holley recorded his first album in 2012 at age 62 after making home recordings for more than two decades. Holley’s music, like his art, defies classification — haunting vocals, keyboards, and new renditions of songs with every performance. He has collaborated with musicians such as Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective, Bill Callahan, and Bon Iver. Holley’s medium is the moment. He’s here with a new band, playing new arrangements and new songs: you’ll only hear it once.
The evening will start with a screening of a short documentary about Holley entitled The Man is the Music, directed by Maris Curran. Preferred ticket buyers are invited to a gallery tour with the artist at 3pm.
