Nota Bene: Æ will perform in the Tula Tearoom. Due to the unique restrictions of the space, we shall not be able to seat latecomers once the performance has started.

Æ (Aurelia Lucy Shrenker and Eva Salina Primack) has been performing as a duo for a year.  Aurelia and Eva have performed together in Europe, New York, and California and have just finished the preliminary sessions for their debut CD.  Though the duo is relatively new, the two women bring together a deep knowledge of different vocal traditions, and create something new and daring with each song they sing together.

They have chosen the name Æ (the joined a and e, officially pronounced "ash") because it represents something of a dual nature — not singular, not plural, but exactly two.  They primarily perform a cappella but enjoy accompanying themselves on dulcimer, accordion, and Georgian panduri.  In addition to their upcoming CD, Æ recently contributed to the soundtrack of The Great Soviet Eclipse, the newest film produced under the auspices of the Museum of Jurassic Technology and the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Information.  Æ's work is rooted in folk culture and never falls short of being visceral and provocative — in their music, the exuberance of youth and the reverence of ancient tradition coincide.

ALL SEATS ARE WILL-CALL. No tickets will be mailed to you. Please address queries to events@mjt.org. If you wish to be added to our events mailing list, please write "SUBSCRIBE" in the subject header of your e-mail.
