Single tickets for this event will be available August 3.

Considered by The New Yorker to be “one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day,” Gabriel Kahane reveals his most personal work in a decade. Written during a self-imposed year off the internet, Magnificent Bird is a collection of songs that gives us a window into a mercurial mind associating freely. Suffused with impressions of the physical world, the narrative reveals an internal landscape that accompanies life in a wounded world. Kahane brings this fully realized set of songs back to Meany after a work-in-process performance in fall 2021. Commissioned by Meany Center.


Kahane [finds] beauty and meaning by stirring together the flotsam and daily particulars of life with existential concerns.
