Amy Denio is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and singer based in Seattle. Since the mid-80s she has maintained a constant flurry of musical activity spanning many genres: free improvisation, art rock, scores for dance and film, solo and in groups such as the Tiptons Sax Quartet, Hell's Bellows accordion ensemble, Kultur Shock, Correo Aereo. Beth Fleenor's robust, malleable sound, organic approach to improvisation, and openness to experimentation in all forms have fueled a list of collaborations. Tonight she brings her band Figeater, whose disjunctive, raucous, soaring, and powerful improvisations are punctuated, buttoned, and launched by original compositions and song-like psychedelic episodes.
