Andrew Bird
Congregation Sherith Israel – San Francisco
December 16, 2013

Andrew Bird, one of the finest violinists and whistlers in the world, continued his Gezelligheid Tour in San Francisco Monday at the Congregation Sherith Israel. Gezelligheid is a Dutch term that loosely translates to “extra extra cozy.” Bird’s holiday-timed performances usually concentrate on instrumental violin pieces amplified only by the signature giant Specimen horns.

While the Chicago & Los Angeles performances this month are at various Churches, the Congregation Sherith Israel Temple provided a spectacular setting to match Bird’s breathtaking music.

Two improvisational sets were played, including a group of countrified numbers with Tiff Merritt (guitar/vocals) & Todd Sickafoose (Bass).
