BAMcafé Live curated by Terrance McKnight: Addi & Jacq

This duo was voted “best emerging band in NYC” as winners of the 2015 WNYC Battle of the Boroughs. Vocalist Addi McDaniel, who has been praised as “a powerhouse with a brass-plated voice” (Los Angeles Times), and the “exceptionally virtuosic and sensitive” (Classical Source) harpist Jacqueline Kerrod fuse classical music with an irresistible pop sensibility. For their BAMcafé debut, they perform songs that run the gamut from delicate, folk-tinged ballads to layered, beat-driven electric harp grooves.
