It seems inevitable to fantasize with the idea that the title of the project that Mary Halvorson is presenting to us here, “Away With You”, confirms the fond memory that the audience must certainly have of her performance in the 2015 edition of this festival. The guitarist was then part of Marc Ribot’s Young Philadelphians, the festival’s headlining act.
Born in Massachusetts, this artist graduated in 2002 from the Wesleyan University and, since then, she has accumulated an endless number of concerts and albums. In fact, “Away With You”, recorded with the eight-piece band that is visiting us this year, came out at the end of 2016, and since then the artist has participated in several projects, such as: “Crop Circles”, with Sylvie Courvoiser, and “Bitter Almonds”, for Kristo Rodzevski.
Free improvisation accepts and celebrates the ephemeral nature of music. One of the main attractions of such spontaneous creation is indeed its temporary existence, the fact that it leaves no trace behind. Mary Halvorson breaks this principle; whoever has seen her perform will never forget her. She will certainly find the space she needs to unfurl her catalogue of attractive virtues in the evocative auditorium of CentroCentro.
