eighth blackbird

The Finesse of a String Quartet and the Energy of a Rock Band

Don’t let the lower case initial letters fool you.  There is nothing subdued about this Grammy-winning sextet’s bracing virtuosity and irreverence.  The lower case is a tribute to the words that inspired their name, words from the eighth stanza of Wallace Stevens’ seminal poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird”: “…noble accents…lucid, inescapable rhythms…”  eighth blackbird is an ensemble for all ages: classical, provocative, cool.

“The blackbirds are examples of a new-breed of super musicians” – Los Angeles Times
