CHIRP Welcomes Moses Sumney

RSVP to this event Buy tickets to this event

Old Town School of Folk Music
4544 N. Lincoln Avenue
Chicago, IL 60625
(773) 728-6000

All Ages


CHIRP is excited to welcome Moses Sumney to The Old Town School of Folk Music on Wednesday, October 4th! Since emerging onto the scene in 2014, Moses Sumney has ridden a wave of word-of-mouth praise, hushed recordings, and dynamic live performances. It's an organic, patient ascent all too rare in today's fast-paced musical climate. In a voice both mellifluous and haunting, Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes, like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems. His vocals narrate a personal journey through universal loneliness atop otherworldly compositional backdrops.
