Part of Alice & John: A Coltrane Festival
“One of the loveliest sounds heard on record in 2020 was the pluck and shimmer of Brandee Younger’s harp.” (Rolling Stone) Making her Penn Live Arts debut, the classically trained, 2021 Grammy®-nominated harpist celebrates her musical hero Alice Coltrane’s otherworldly album, Ptah, the El Daoud, with additional Coltrane favorites and music from Younger’s 2021 album, Somewhere Different. “Younger has almost single-handedly made a persuasive argument for the harp’s role in contemporary jazz,” (The New York Times) and this immersive concert experience will surely illustrate why.
