Palaver Strings’ Beehive Chamber Series Presents “Nightingale in a Tree” February 2
Palaver Strings’ Beehive Chamber Series presents “Nightingale in a Tree” Friday, February 2, at 7 p.m.

Palaver Strings welcomes Fredy Clue, a Nyckelharpa virtuoso, composer, and multi-instrumentalist from Sweden. Hailed as “a creator of remarkable experiences and a true innovator in the folk art space,” Clue has taken the traditional music scene by storm. Their music takes inspiration from the forests, oceans, birds, and animals alike.
Joined by Maine’s own Jamie Oshima, a talented guitarist, Palaver Strings will premiere Clue’s new arrangements for Nyckelharpa and strings. It will pair Clue’s music with Philip Glass’s Fourth String Quartet. Written in memory of avant-garde artist Brian Buczak, this three-movement work combines undulating arpeggios, soaring melodies, and rich harmonies to create a deep-rooted, whole-body experience.
