cello/percussion collaboration with Ashlee Booth
curator, Crossroads New Music Series
Two-Way Street is a cello/percussion collaboration between Ashlee Booth and Adam Lion. Working together as Graduate Teaching Assistants at the University of Tennessee, the group was formed through a shared desire to create new music and explore the sonic possibilities of cello/percussion music. Recent projects include performances at the Nief-Norf Summer Music Festival, the 2018 New Music Gathering at Boston Conservatory, and community outreach at Knoxville public schools. In the Summer of 2018 the duo will be in residence at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute, where they will be workshopping a newly commissioned work with composer Sarah Hennies.
Two-Way Street also curates the Crossroads New Music Series, the sole presenter of contemporary music in Knoxville, Tennessee. As a celebration of musical innovation and diversity, the series seeks to present local and regional artists on the cutting-edge. By presenting bold music, the series encourages its attendants to listen to the world in a new way.
Through generous donations from patrons, Two-Way Street is able to present the Crossroads New Music Series as well as multitude of other collaborations. Support of Two-Way Street helps to enrich the growth and innovation of the contemporary art community in Knoxville, the cultural hub of Southern Appalachia.
