Andrew Bird debuts his intimate Gezelligheid performances in Nashville this winter for a two-night residency with Joan Shelley at the Downtown Presbyterian Church. Appropriating a Dutch term that loosely translates to cozy, the performances concentrate mainly on instrumental violin pieces amplified only by his signature giant Victrola horns. Bird notes - What I hope to do with these shows is adapt my music completely to the atmosphere of the space and the season. I want the audience to be both lifted and comforted as we head into another cold and dark winter. I feel the space should be sacred so the audience can experience my music in a different atmosphere.
