Rubin Kodheli with Blues in Space and the Kodheli Cello Quartet

Saturday, 10 February 2018, 8.00pm

The Saturday night concert during Spike Cello Festival will feature US/Albanian artist, composer/cellist Rubin Kodheli, a celebrated, versatile, genre-transcending creative rebel most recently seen by Dublin audiences performing with Laurie Anderson at the NCH in spring 2017. Rubin has made a name for himself performing with Roberta Flack, Henry Threadgill, Wyclef Jean, Norah Jones, Vampire Weekend, Dave Douglas, Makoto Ozone, Wadada Leo Smith and Joan Labarabara. At this concert, he will be performing with two ensembles - Blues in Space and the Kodheli Cello Quartet. Blues in Space, made up of Kodheli on cello and Garrett Brown on drums, is quickly rising to the forefront of a new avant-rock movement, offering audiences a chaotic and intense musical experience. As Lucid Culture wrote, "Bands like Blues in Space make a good battering ram: they destroy boundaries." Kodheli will also be performing with a specially assembled cello quartet of Kate Ellis, Laura Moody and Ben Cashell who will join Kodheli to perform a selection of his cello quartet music.
