Cellist Sollee is known for music and his sustainability efforts
The indie orchestra Mother Falcon will take York's CapLive stage in October along with cellist composer Ben Sollee.
Mother Falcon, a young group of 17 musicians from Austin, Texas, just released its third album, Good Luck Have Fun, on BitCandy Digital and Punctum Records. The group has been touring since 2013, after leaving their hometown and risking it all in New York City, then selling out a national tour at small venues.
Sollee recently released his score for the documentary "Maidentrip," and In March, he performed at Carnegie Hall in a tribute for Paul Simon. He's also well known for his travels since 2009. He has used his bicycle to take him more than 4,000 miles from show to show, seeking a deeper connection with the communities he visits. His unconventional mode of transportation landed him performances and speaking engagements on sustainability at a number of festivals, including South by Southwest.
The show is at 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 18, but a free pre-show event starts at 6:30 in the Strand lobby with a food vendor, live music, table tennis, cornhole and a cash bar.
CapLive is a music series created by the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center and presented on the Capitol side of the theater.
Tickets for the show are $20. Buy them here.
