Kronos Quartet and Friends Celebrate Pete Seeger

With special guests Lee Knight, Meklit, Jolie Holland, and Tonality
Prerecorded Live at Royce Hall  |  Free Online Event

From the CAP UCLA website: “Over the course of its 47-year history, San Francisco’s Grammy-winning Kronos Quartet has frequently explored social justice issues in its work. The group has always been inspired by legendary folk icon and activist Pete Seeger, who spent his life singing about change and inspiring others to do the same. To mark Seeger’s 100th birthday in 2019, Kronos created a multi-artist exploration of Seeger’s musical legacy, collaborating with composer Jacob Garchik and a host of guest vocalists and fellow musicians, including folk artist and storyteller Lee Knight and Ethiopian-born, SF-based singer and songwriter Meklit, both of whom will join Kronos at CAP UCLA. For this concert, LA’s Tonality chorus and Los Angeles singer/songwriter Jolie Holland also perform. Kronos’ Seeger project, commissioned by the FreshGrass Foundation, has been recorded for Smithsonian Folkways, and will be released in the fall of 2020.”
