Guitarist and composer Gyan Riley is steeped in classical, contemporary and Indian music and can find inspiration in baroque music, flamenco or Americana. He has collaborated with a number of musicians from a wide array of musical worlds - Zakir Hussain, Lou Reed, John Zorn, the Kronos Quartet, Lee Ranaldo, Iva Bittova and his father. Elixir takes Gyan away from the solo acoustic work he has often  performed at barbès and goes polyphonic with a quartet at once serious and playful. The group last engagement was supposed to be at the prestigious big Ears festival, in early 2020, but well, you know. Catch them in their first post pandemic show. 

Gyan Riley - electric guitar and ukulele; Taylor Levine - electric guitar; Greg Chudzik - bass and David Cossin - drums.

“Gyan Riley is a one-man American-music machine, amicably ranging across the fields of jazz, world music, and post-minimalism,” The New Yorker. 

All tickets are $20 and general admission.
