Lee Knight

 

continued

Though born and raised in Saranac Lake, New York, Knight has lived in the Appalachians for many years, now in Cashiers, North Carolina. (Okay, there's your money connection!) His Ann Arbor visit is sponsored jointly by the Ann Arbor District Library's Songsters program and the Ann Arbor Council for Traditional Music and Dance. Knight will be in residence at local schools and will play a concert at the downtown library on Wednesday, February 8.

From Ann Arbor he'll travel to New York to share the stage of Carnegie Hall with Chinese pipa player Wu Man, a prolific collaborator both with Western classical and jazz musicians and with traditional musicians from many cultures. Her lutelike instrument, it turns out, blends beautifully with Knight's banjo and dulcimer. At Carnegie Hall, Knight will bring the music he loves down from the mountains and, demonstrating its continuing vitality, raise it to the pinnacle of the music world.
