STRUNG UP w/ Lillian Reasor & Katie Turek
March 22, 2018 | 7:00 pm-9:00 pm$20
Lillian Reasor & Katie Turek
Strung Up is a rare duo combining the harp & guitar. Keryn Wouden and Brandon J. Acker met while pursuing their Master’s degrees at Northwestern University. They began performing the known duos for the instruments and found a passion for the special quality of the pairing. Surprised by the scarce repertoire for the duo, they began the collaborative process of arranging for their instruments and commissioning composers to help them expand the repertoire. Since then they have premiered a new piece written for them by Julietta Anne Rabens, performed on WDRT 91.9FM, premiered the first harp & guitar arrangement of a Philip Glass string quartet and plan to release a CD in the Summer of 2015 of Minimalist music.
Lillian Reasor is an internationally awarded Irish harpist and has been been performing for over 17 years. She has performed in venues and festivals all over the United States, Canada, and Ireland. She placed 3rd in the world at the Fleadh Cheoil in Tullamore, Ireland in 2007 and 2008. Her blend of music and storytelling takes audiences from ancient Ireland to present day Chicago with original arrangements of traditional Irish tunes to brand new compositions. She can regularly be found performing all over Chicago.
