Kishi Bashi, the international touring artist who calls Athens home, will be bringing in the New Year at the 40 Watt Club with Tall Tall Trees. Both songwriters are accomplished multi-instrumentalists, with Kishi Bashi known for his violin mastery and Tall Tall Trees considered a pioneer in the realm of experimental, DIY banjo music. This fall marked the 10 year anniversary of Kishi Bashi’s debut album, 151a, named in reference to a Japanese term that means something akin to “once in a lifetime.” Over the past 10 years, Kishi Bashi has recreated that once in a lifetime feeling over and over again performing with orchestras across the U.S., releasing a feature length documentary exploring minority identity and scoring the entire soundtrack for Apple TV+’s kids show “Stillwater” among other accomplishments.

WHO: Kishi Bashi, Tall Tall Trees
WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 31, 8 p.m.
WHERE: 40 Watt Club
