Concert by Ralph White

You are cordially invited to Elaine's concert

Ralph White (USA) – Voice, Violin, Banjo, Kalimba

I compose music, improvise music, and steal music, Mr. White explains, but I really think that the more the lines between these categories are blurred, the more interesting it becomes. So I guess I'm a blurrer.

White was a member of well-loved punk bluegrass outfit Bad Livers, but his solo work is possessed of a much more lonesome spark, exaggerating the implied drone at the heart of the music of Dock Boggs and The Stanley Brothers…White plays wooden six-string banjo, violin, button accordion and kalimba and his voice has a high, eerie quality to it…extremely psychedelic (David Keenan, The Wire UK)

In cooperation with Klappfon

Elaine Mgk is the new venue in the courtyard of the Museum für Gegenwartskunst Basel.
