Staller Center starts off its season with a folk rock show on Saturday, October 15—The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, comprised of Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. The duo released their debut album, Acoustic Sessions, in the fall of 2010. They have recently performed at venues in Brooklyn, Paris, and London.
The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Lennon and Muhl, are children of unique circumstances. He is the son of two artistic icons, Yoko Ono and John Lennon; she is the daughter of a Southern military family and was plucked into the world of modeling and globe-trotting in her early teenage years. They draw from a scope of influence like no other.
Expect music that shows their love of quirky and whimsical ’60s folk pop and arrangements that are adventurous and playful, anchored by the beautiful blend of Lennon’s and Muhl’s voices, acoustic guitar, and a smattering of other instruments—a vibraphone here, a banjo there.
Tickets are $34 and are available at at stallercenter.com, the Staller Center Box Office, or by calling (631) 632-ARTS.
The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s performance at Staller Center is complemented by Yoko Ono’s exhibit in the University Art Gallery, on view through October 15: Yoko Ono Imagine Peace Featuring John and Yoko’s Year of Peace.
