Be sure to catch them if you can. They will be here in Nashville on Thursday, May 22 for an all-day celebration of their music and avant-garde jazz, with an “Out of the Lunchbox” talk by Vanderbilt professor Robert Fry at noon at the downtown Public Library, followed by a workshop/masterclass with Ingrid and Tom in the library auditorium. Then, at 7:00pm, the duo will perform at “Indeterminacies” at Zeitgeist Gallery with a discussion segment led by Prof. Fry. This, sadly, will be the final "Indeterminacies" event--but we're going out with a bang. Not to be missed!!
