Hawaii Theatre Center presents RELEASE THE HOUNDS: AN EVENING WITH JULIAN LAGE & CHRIS ELDRIDGE | AOIFE O'DONOVAN

A night of intrepid songwriting and acoustic innovation, beginning with Aoife O’Donovan at center stage. O’Donovan draws from her catalogue of songs, played as she wrote them; with just her acoustic guitar and voice. The Washington Post describes her singing as "almost too gorgeous for its own good." Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge follow with their masterly acoustic performance typical of the virtuosic duo, known for pushing the envelope of folk, bluegrass, and jazz. Showcasing, as The New Yorker writes, a "familiarity with the fretboard…so extravagant and capacious that they bring flourishes to this music that it simply hasn’t enjoyed before," their performance is sure to astound. The evening concludes with all three on stage together in an aural-hootenanny.
