Rob's Upcoming Shows

Happy New Year! Just like last month's newsletter, I'm going to highlight a few shows that I think are especially interesting and worth checking out. Can't make any of these, but still want to see me this month? Check my website's "shows" page for the most up-to-date list of everywhere I'll be.

Alison Chase / Performance @ Miller Theatre (NYC)

Dancers: Jenna Liberati, Mark Fucik

January 2015

1/09/15, 1/10/15, 1/11/15 @ Miller Theater, NYC

I have been collaborating with choreographer Alison Chase since we met at the Bates Dance Festival in 2012. Together we have composed a work called "Red Weather": I wrote the music; she wrote the choreography. Both of us tapped into the raw energy of an incredible cast of dancers to come up with these ideas, in a process that started with improvisation and then got sculpted slowly but surely over multiple residencies, with lots of filming and reflection. Now, at long last, it's done! Come see our crowning achievement, along with several other beautiful works. I will be playing solo violin and singing, in real time with the dancers. If you're not sold yet, come for the dancers: they are incredible!

Rambling w/Michael Tarbox

1/30/14 w/the Tarbox Ramblers @ Parlor Room (Northampton, MA)

I've been playing with singer-songwriter Michael Tarbox since 2010, and every show is a treat. Previously signed to Rounder Records but off the road for a while (he has a wonderful 3-year-old daughter!), he's back in the saddle, and I'm honored to join the cast of the Tarbox Ramblers in their mix of blues, roots, and hillbilly stomp music. If you're in Western MA, come on out! If not, stay tuned; we will be playing in your area soon.

Other News

Print The Legend, as seen from my Dad's monitor

I'm On Netflix!

Thanks to several friends who noticed my cameo in Netflix-exclusive documentary Print The Legend (I don't have Netflix, so I'd never know otherwise!). It's a cool documentary on 3D printing. I played at a party for FormLabs, one of the companies in the film, and I guess they liked our sound! You can catch me playing some bluegrass bass in the second half of the film.

I'm also on Netflix in another small way: you can hear my violin on the soundtrack to James Franco's adaptation of the William Faulkner classic, As I Lay Dying.
