The Accidentals at Interlochen Center for the Arts

The Accidentals at Interlochen Center for the Arts

Jan 27, 7:30pm - Jan 27, 10:00pm

Interlochen Center for the Arts
4000 Hwy M-137 South
Interlochen, MI  49643 Map

Marvel at the musicianship and music of two break-out Interlochen Alumni.

Named among Yahoo Music's "Top 10 Bands to Watch in 2017," The Accidentals’ return to their hometown of Traverse City, MI—and their alma mater of Interlochen—to play this not-to-be-missed performance at Corson Auditorium.
Multi-instrumentalists Sav Buist (IAA 12-13) and Katie Larson (IAC 05, 08-12/IAA 12-14), joined by drummer Michael Dause, have crafted a genre all their own.

Larson, a sophomore cellist, and Buist, a junior violinist left their public high school to participate in the first year of the Singer Songwriter program at IAA. During that time they recorded their second album, Bittersweet. Over 1500 live shows and a self produced EP later, they signed a recording contract with Sony Masterworks in 2017. They return to Interlochen with their debut major label album, Odyssey, on Jan 27th, 2018.

THE ALBUM:
“They display equal interest in the focused musical forms of indie rock and pop and the expansive potential of orchestral arrangements, jam band open-endedness and impressionistic singer-songwriter expression.”
NPR First Listen: The Accidentals, ‘Odyssey.

THE LIVE SHOW:
The Knockturnal: Concert Review - The Accidentals At Mercury Lounge. “The first thing I noticed, other than the door-to-stage packed room, was the charisma of the band. It’s one thing to get a crowd energized and pumped, but to connect with them on an extremely real level is something that not many acts can pull off gracefully...with laugh inducing anecdotes before each song, Larson and Buist created a strong atmosphere and connection with the crowd.”

Diandra Reviews it All: Concert Review - The Accidentals Are The Comic-Con of Musicians at Mercury Lounge. “The Accidentals are the type of talents that remind humanity it can be so much more than how it acts or behaves. They go beyond lyrics that zone in on love’s ups and downs to present life as the core source of your balanced instability. They are more than just musicians; they are family.”
