#245 Eighth Blackbird Creative Lab

Four-time Grammy winning super group Eighth Blackbird unveils their newest creative project: “to inspire the next generation of performers and composers to share in the ensemble’s vision: to champion a distinctive, dynamic and engaging performance aesthetic.”

We’ll talk to the birds and this year’s participants and bring you into the creative process as the lab comes to life.
