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).
