T. Griffin and Catherine McRae coax a luminous sound out of decayed samplers, footpedal loopers, tape echo violins, vibraphonette and homespun harmonies. Like a space-age Carter Family, they weave low-tech electronics around songs sturdy enough to stand up even if the power goes out. As T. Griffin Coraline and The Quavers they released 5 albums from 2000 to 2012, and haunted the back room at Barbes on a monthly basis for long stretches of that time. Since 2012 McRae has composed adventurous ambient violin soundscapes for solo performance  and Griffin has created wildly varied original scores for dozens of films and television shows. This will be their first duo performance since a one-off at 2017's Big Ears Festival.
