Beck Enlists All-Star Lineup for Song Reader Performance
This summer, a jam-packed group of musicians will perform Beck Hansen’s book of sheet music, Song Reader.
Joining him in London’s Barbican Centre on July 4 will be Jarvis Cocker or Pulp, Franz Ferdinand, Joan Wasser, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Beth Orton, Michael Kiwanuka and many others.
The 20 compositions have already been played live around the world, but this will be the very first time Beck will perform the music himself.
Leading up to the performance, Barbican and Faber Social will celebrate the performances of the Song Reader pieces that have come to life by other musicians and orchestras.
General admission tickets go on sale May 17 at 10 a.m.
