Maya Beiser: Uncovered is a collection of startling classic rock tunes, re-imagined and re- contextualized, in stunning performances by Maya Beiser. Her concert at FringeArts, with bassist Gyan Riley and drummer Matt Kilmer, follows shortly after the August 26, 2014 release of Uncovered, the album.

A “cover tune” can be an homage to the original, but these “uncovers,” in new arrangements by Evan Ziporyn, attempt to do more – to evoke the unprecedented power of the music of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Janis Joplin, Howlin’ Wolf, and AC/DC. Maya juxtaposes these handpicked rock classics with composer and Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche’s Three Parts Wisdom and David T. Little’s Hellhound, both written for Maya, and David Lang’s take on Lou Reed’s Heroin. Maya’s performance explores the juncture where the spiritual, traditional, contemporary, urban, and popular culture meet. For more information visit www.mayabeiser.com.
