“Hot Air & Horse Hair” is an improvised chamber music ensemble - comprised of improvisers from Baltimore, MD and Brooklyn, NY. While this ensemble has never yet performed in this configuration, there are deep musical bonds across the group which will serve as fertile creative soil. While each performer is a compelling instrumentalist in their own right, the strength in each of these musicians is in their varied, supple, and compelling interjections - both as soloists and accompanists.

Sets at 8pm & 9:30pm
