Forecastle Festival 2012 preview: Andrew Bird

Andrew Bird, an eclectic musical virtuoso who has been dominating the indie circuit for years, will perform at the Forecastle Festival this Saturday, Friday 14, at 7:30 p.m. on the Mast Stage.

This Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist is known first and foremost as a violin virtuoso, but has also utilized his talents in the areas of visual art and film since his solo career took off in 2003. For a preview of the unpredictable live show he promises this weekend and his infamous on-stage improvisation, check out his live Fingerlings compilations.

About Karen Ellestad

I got a postcard.
