Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

Read a Flavorpill interview with Marc about the score.
“Ribot is a musician for whom the description ’guitarist’s guitarist’ is genuinely appropriate… The Kid was a profound and profoundly challenging evening of music, and established a new high water mark for a live music venue in Dallas.” —Dallas Observer
Marc Ribot, a “guitarists’ guitarist” by any reckoning, is simply one of the most distinctive, transporting, and plainly unyielding of guitarists playing today. A veteran of a multitude of projects of his own, he also has enlivened the work of artists as varied as Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, John Zorn, and Allison Krauss and Robert Plant’s hit album Raising Sand.
For his Earshot concert in Seattle, he performs solo guitar music in a program that culminates in his performance of his new solo-guitar score for one of the classics of early film, Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid, which starred the impish Jackie Coogan in the title role. The New York Guitar Festival commissioned the score, and Ribot premiered it last year during the festival at Merkin Hall in New York.
