Founded in 1997, Town and Country has become a much beloved staple of Chicago's rich and inexhaustible music scene. Over the course of four recordings, its members, Jim Dorling, Ben Vida, Liz Payne and Josh Abrams, have fashioned a smart and wholly accessible weave of minimalist influences, including John Fahey, Tony Conrad, and Morton Feldman. Town and Country's all acoustic instrumentation features bass clarinet, guitar, double bass, harmonium, celeste and chimes. Without a drummer, their sound is best characterized as gentle. You are invited to join us as the gallery becomes an extension of Jim Dorling's living room where the band perfected their subtle sensibility. This event will take place in the gallery.
