Folk supergroup I’m With Her to perform at Purdue Nov. 1

Friday, October 26, 2018

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The group I’m With Her will perform at Stewart Center’s Loeb Playhouse at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1. This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with support from Kevin and Janene Davis, the Student Concert Committee and the Student Fee Advisory Board.

Prior to the show, musicologist Daniel Guberman will discuss the evening’s performance at 6:30 p.m. in the 1869 Tap Room in the Purdue Memorial Union.

A last-minute text request to play an off-the-cuff Telluride Bluegrass Festival show. Several songs workshopped in a bathroom on the fly. A late-night crowd immediately energized by the combined virtuosity of multi-instrumentalists Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz, and Aoife O’Donovan. This is how folk supergroup I’m With Her began, but the path was laid years prior through numerous Grammy wins, two seminal modern Americana bands (Watkins’ Nickel Creek and O’Donovan’s Crooked Still), and contributions to numerous acclaimed albums. By turns plaintive, warm, and bluesy, I’m With Her delivers indelibly pure vocal harmony, familial chemistry, and nimble instrumental interplay for music that The New York Times says “radiates togetherness.”

Tickets are $32 for adults and $22 for children 18 years and younger, Purdue students and Ivy Tech Lafayette students. Tickets are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933 or 800-914-SHOW. Group tickets are also available to groups of 10 more.
