Gezelligheid Winter 2013
Hello friends, today we’re announcing the yearly installment of the intimate “Gezelligheid” performances this winter with concerts scheduled in Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Appropriating a Dutch term that loosely translates to “extra extra cozy,” the shows concentrate mainly on instrumental violin pieces amplified only by the signature giant Specimen horns. This year’s shows will include special guest Tift Merritt.
