Ghost Train Orchestra & Kronos Quartet playing “The Music of Moondog” live in NYC with Marissa Nadler & more


Last year, Kronos Quartet teamed with Ghost Train Orchestra for Songs and Symphoniques: The Music of Moondog, which featured contributions from Jarvis Cocker, Marissa Nadler, Rufus Wainwright, Joan as Police Woman, Sam Amidon and more. Here’s a bit from our Indie Basement review of the album:

Louis Hardin was better known as Moondog, a composer and poet, blind since childhood, who lived on the streets of New York City in the ’50s and ’60s. While often found on Sixth Avenue busking in a viking costume, reciting poetry and selling sheet music, his work was also highly influential with the new wave of modern composers from the era, including Terry Riley, Steve Reich and Phillip Glass (who took Moondog in to live with him at one point). Ghost Train Orchestra and Glass collaborators Kronos Quartet have teamed up for this tribute, reimagining Moondog’s compositions.

Ghost Train Orchestra and Kronos Quartet will be bringing the album to life at NYC’s Town Hall on April 16, with Marissa Nadler, Joan as Police Woman, Karen Mantler, and more TBA. They’re billing this as “your only chance to hear this extra special collaboration LIVE.” Tickets are on sale now.
