The FreshGrass Commission-Bill Frisell
In keeping with our longtime support of grassroots projects in the arts, Rex is happy to help support this notable world premiere of an original composition, presented by our friends at FreshGrass.
Guitarist Bill Frisell, a relentless explorer of American roots traditions, was the recipient of the inaugural FreshGrass Composition Commission, given yearly to an artist whose work reflects the FreshGrass mission to preserve and support innovative grassroots music. On November 2, at the Strand Theater in San Francisco, he convenes a new ensemble consisting of fiddler/vocalist Petra Haden, cellist Hank Roberts, and multi-instrumentalist Luke Bergman for the world premiere of new music written for the Commission.
