Breath and Bow
Breath and Bow
Breath and Bow will illuminate a musical conversation on the cultivation and preservation authenticity, from our state and from Eastern Europe.

Caroline Shaw, Pulitzer Prize winner and North Carolina native, appears as composer/improviser and performer, offering looops, lines as well as a piece for string quartet and voice.

Jennifer Curtis teams up with New York based Cellist superstar Brook Speltz for a duo by Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodály.

The evening will also bring forth a suite of lullabies from North America and Eastern Europe as well as the wise voice and stories of Ella Bertram. Concluding with violin virtuosity and improvisation from the two globe trotting North Carolina fiddler-violinists, this concert marks the start of a new series in the back room of the cat's cradle!
Stay tuned for more!

Violinist Jennifer Curtis navigates with personality and truth in every piece she performs. Her second solo concert in Carnegie Hall was described by the New York Times as “one of the gutsiest and most individual recital programs,” and she was celebrated as “an artist of keen intelligence and taste, well worth watching out for.”

An improviser, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, Jennifer is a member of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and founder of the group Tres Americas Ensemble. She has appeared as a soloist with the Simon Bolivar Orchestra in Venezuela and the Knights Chamber Orchestra; performed in Romania in honor of George Enescu; given world premieres at the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York; collaborated with composer John Adams at the Library of Congress; and appeared at El Festival de las Artes Esénias in Peru and festivals worldwide.

An educator with a focus on music as humanitarian aid, Jennifer has also collaborated with musical shamen of the Andes, improvised for live radio from the interior of the Amazon jungle, and taught and collaborated with Kurdish refugees in Turkey.

Jennifer joins the Haw River Ballroom’s Culture Mill in Saxapahaw, North Carolina as artist in residence this spring, and will teach a course on the art of interpretation at Duke University next year. She plays on a 1777 Vincenzo Panormo.
