The Strings/Keys Incident: An Evening With Joanna Newsom comes to Bates Recital Hall on January 15 & 16.
The Strings/Keys Incident tour will see Newsom playing her unique and hauntingly beautiful songs solo on both harp and piano. Joanna Newsom began playing the harp growing up in Northern California. She got her start performing in San Francisco clubs, playing keys with the Bay Area band The Pleased. Newsom struck out on her own in 2004 with her critically acclaimed debut album The Milk-Eyed Mender. Newsom would follow with Ys in 2006--which cracked the Billboard 200 chart and nabbed a nomination for the 2007 Shortlist Music Prize--and Have One on Me in 2010. Newsome released her latest album, Divers, in 2015.
