Upcoming Live Performances

Tu / 10.1 / 7:30p / Radiolab @ National Sawdust, Brooklyn NYC

MacArthur Award-winning radio host and composer Jad Abumrad (Radiolab, More Perfect) takes part in his fourth NationalSawdust+ program: Covering Home, a playful evening of storytelling and song that explores ideas of home, loss, and migration. Taking us from the mountains ranges of Tennessee to Jabal Lubnān in his father’s homeland of Lebanon, his program will showcase abstracted covers of traditional song performed by singular singer/violinist and Pulitzer-Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw; haunting music by Korean-American composer, vocalist, and performing sound artist Bora Yoon; and the arresting work of Tamino, the songwriter-musician of Belgian, Egyptian, and Lebanese heritage. Abumrad will also share mash-ups with the iconic voices of Dolly Parton and Fairouz.  EVENT INFO & TICKETS >>
