Joanna Newsom

I was excited to read BrooklynVegan’s post the other day about Joanna Newsom’s upcoming orchestral performance at BAM. Just thought I would let you know that subscriptions and single tickets for this show go on sale Dec 17 to Friends of BAM and Jan 2 to the general public. Here’s a little more about the performance from the BAM site:

Joanna Newsom’s The Milk-Eyed Mender (2004) announced the arrival of one of the most original and intriguing artists to emerge in the new century. A classically trained harpist with a poet’s imagination, Newsom makes folk songs filled with playful allegories and exquisite textures. On her next album Ys (2006), Newsom teamed up with Van Dyke Parks””a legendary composer who has worked with artists from The Beach Boys to Rufus Wainwright””and created a work of epic scope, lyrical insight, and lush orchestration. Newsom makes her BAM debut with a performance of Ys accompanied by Brooklyn Philharmonic, followed by a set with her band.
