Sons of Chipotle

Sat   Mar   23   2024 - 3:30 PM Tennessee Theatre
Sons of Chipotle cover an uncommonly vast area of the musical map and both John Paul Jones and Anssi Karttunen are thrilled to be making their US debut performance at Big Ears Festival in March 2024.
It is incredibly rare to find two of the finest musicians in the world improvising together, but following 6 sold-out concerts in South Korea and Japan, the next stop for Sons of Chipotle is Knoxville, Tennessee. Both musicians are known to be curious minds, always ready to learn and to discover. When they improvise, borders disappear, they are free to migrate beyond prejudices, across continents. In a world full of conflicts and displaced people, Sons of Chipotle want music to be a place of openness.
Sons of Chipotle features John Paul Jones on piano and electronics, with Anssi Karttunen on cello and electronics.
