Cornell Concert Series presents Eighth Blackbird. Winner of four Grammy® awards, the Chicago-based sextet has provoked and impressed audiences for over 20 years. This CCS program combines works from the group's collaboration with the Sleeping Giant composer collective with their previous album, “Filament.” Bringing art and sound together, Eighth Blackbird’s multimedia presentation of “Murder Ballades” uses new music to draw upon the timeless dark side of American folk music and European fairy tales.
