Ars Nova Workshop is pleased to present the mesmerizing duo of drummer Jim White and guitarist Marisa Anderson at Solar Myth on Thursday, May 9.

Drummer Jim White and guitarist Marisa Anderson share an abounding appetite for musical exploration. White, as a member of Dirty Three and Xylouris White, is well known for his creative and idiosyncratic drumming, leading to collaborations with Cat Power, PJ Harvey and Bill Callahan, among others. Anderson’s mastery of traditional folk and blues forms and her abilities to make them entirely her own have established her as one of the most exciting and forward-thinking guitarists of the last decade. Writing for Pitchfork, Jesse Jarnow described their debut duo recording, The Quickening, as “music as a frozen moment, a precarious combination of energies and ephemeralities and economies.”
