Future Folk Machine

February 17 - February 18

Future Folk Machine

In an evening of encounters with an almost impossibly wide variety of music, Present Music carves an audacious path for the future of folk.

Following a tour de force performance in 2021, soprano Ariadne Greif returns to Present Music to perform music from lounge psychodrama The Secret Diary of Nora Plain and an enduring classic by local favorite and Token Creek Festival founder John Harbison.

Avant-folk artist Paul Metzger plays a set of improvisations on a 23-stringed banjo of his own creation, seven PM musicians perform a work that explores all of the sonic possibilities of toilet paper, and the ensemble unleashes high-octane imaginary folk music by Unsuk Chin.
