This event is SOLD OUT.
January 30 will mark the third time that 10 String Symphony has performed at Pittsburgh Winery. 10SS shows are always among our favorite music events, and we are excited to kick off our 2016 MNOJ season with Rachel and Christian making their amazing music in the best-sounding listening room in the City.
The new album, Weight Of The World, is climbing the charts and is (deservedly) creating a lot of buzz for the duo. 10SS has recently been featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered and the American Songwriter Live Sessions. If you have been to either of the first two shows at the Winery, you know why. If you haven’t experienced 10SS yet, join us now before the band graduates to larger rooms. There is something special about experiencing beautiful acoustic music in an intimate setting.
More on 10 String Symphony :
10SS is an arena for mesmerizing acoustic innovation. Although difficult to categorize, their music is instantly recognizable as a blend of two distinct but equally vivacious musical voices, encompassing “aggressive, almost discordant, celtic and dare I say punky string-chording experimentations” (The Bluegrass Situation). Vocally, Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer lock in seamlessly, and their vocal duets often take center stage despite the fact that they are self-described fiddle players.
Sedelmyer (Formerly of the Farewell Drifters) and Baiman (Formerly of Belfry Fellows) met in Nashville, and realized a mutual love for the range and depth of the 5-String fiddle. Their desire to see just how far a two-fiddle, two-vocals instrumentation could take them was the inspiration for the 10 String Symphony project. By the time their first full-length album was released in November 2012, their instrumentation had expanded to include the occasional clawhammer banjo and resonator mandolin, though still maintaining a stripped down, tightly woven and carefully arranged duo sound.
