Little One with Dina Maccabee and Stephanie Lavon Trotter

August 31, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


My new quartet Little One closes this show, supporting Dina Maccabee’s solo viola/voice/electronics CD release tour, Stephanie Lavon Trotter opens.

Dina Maccabee’s solo viola+voice repertoire combines a life-long pursuit of classical, folk, and improvisatory approaches to her instrument; poignant songwriting; and a talent for defying expectations. Electronic processing has added depth, space, and complexity to her already warm and inviting string and vocal sounds. Recently the violist/backup vocalist for internationally renowned artist Julia Holter, Dina has also toured extensively since 2003.

It’ll sound kinda like this:

Stephanie Lavon Trotter uses her voice and Sound as a foundation for creating performative installations. She is reclaiming Opera; forming its unknown contours into something her own. Stephanie composes, and improvises with electronics and acoustically; in ensembles and solo.


Little One explores Americana, jazz, and chamber music through original works that aren’t afraid to share closely-held truths. The group’s first recording features songs dedicated to bandleader Douglas Detrick’s family—it is the most personal project he’s ever tackled, in a long line of intimate work. The quartet’s unconventional instrumentation—Detrick on clawhammer banjo, voice, and trumpet, William Seiji Marsh on guitar, Lauren Elledge on viola, and Andy Rayborn on bass clarinet—gives the group a unique ability to access sounds that no other group can.
