The Hands Free celebrate the release of their self-titled debut album on New Amsterdam Records with a lively evening of acoustic music. Comprised of composer/performers James Moore (guitar/banjo), Caroline Shaw (violin), Nathan Koci (accordion) and Eleonore Oppenheim (bass), The Hands Free draw on a breadth of influences from traditional folk music, classical styles, and avant-garde experimentation to create a mash-up of evocative melodies, ethereal soundscapes, and explosive improvisations. The Hands Free are joined by special guests, Mary Halvorson (guitars) and Robbie Lee (woodwinds), who will perform music from their upcoming album Seed Triangular, slated for release on New Amsterdam in September 2018.
