Bill MacKay and Katinka Kleijn at Acme Records and Music Emporium in Milwaukee on November 1, 2019

My Album of the Year for 2019 was Stir by the amazing duo of guitarist Bill MacKay and cellist Katinka Kleijn. Their release on Drag City was captivating with its intricate melodies and gentle harmonies. 

The audience at Acme was treated to a really lovely 45-minute set. The music is difficult to characterize with traditional genres and is a good illustration of the limits of such genres. Classical, avant garden, acoustic... I will go with, "beautiful."

I am so very grateful to Bill and Katinka for allowing me to record.
