Eaux Claires 2016

excWe are thrilled to be returning to the idyllic and incisive Eaux Claires Music Festival this summer. yMusic will perform its own show on August 13th, after joining The Staves for a fully collaborative show on August 12th. In the spirit of the festival, our members will be featured with a few other bands, chiefly Lucius and My Brightest Diamond, and will join forces with players from Eighth Blackbird to perform Steve Reich‘s Double Sextet. The lineup is sensational, and tickets are a steal! We hope you will join us by the river for some beautiful music!
