“Aurora Nealand Has Always Been A Bit Of An Enigma”

We’re thrilled to welcome New Orleans bandleader, saxophonist, clarinetist, and singer Aurora Nealand to Big Ears for the first time. She’s the hinge of a very special new band called Absînt, which makes its world premiere at Big Ears 2019. Nealand joins David Torn, Bill Frisell, and Tim Berne for the set. For a rundown of what makes her such a compelling artist—“a thoroughly modern artist who works in a traditional vein, at least some of the time,” in fact—give this OffBeat profile a read.
