Andrew Bird Brings "Cozy" Performances to New York and Chicago this Winter
Andrew Bird will bring his “Gezelligheid” performances to New York City and Chicago this winter. Gezelligheid is a Dutch word that roughly translates to ‘cozy,’ and describes his largely instrumental performance perfectly. “I want the audience to be both lifted and comforted as we head into another cold and dark winter,” Bird said in a recent announcement. “I feel the space should be sacred so the audience can experience my music in a different atmosphere.” The spaces booked for this winter are certainly sacred, as Bird will be playing at Chicago’s Fourth Presbyterian Church December 19-20, and New York’s Riverside Church on December 10.
His latest album, Break it Yourself, was recorded and produced by Bird at his Western Illinois barn near the banks of the Mississippi.
