Blackbird Ensemble: Carnivale

Formed in 2010, Blackbird Ensemble puts on theatrically inspired productions with a rotating cast of 50 or so musicians.

In its Carnivale incarnation, a six piece band of strings and drums performs inventive arrangements of artists like Joanna Newsom, James Blake, Portishead and Sufjan Stevens.

Leading the sextet is vocal powerhouse Jessie Cassin (Sola Rosa, Eyes no Eyes).
