Considered by The New Yorker to be “one of the finest, most searching songwriters of the day,” Gabriel Kahane reveals his most personal work in a decade. Written during a self-imposed year off the internet, Magnificent Bird is a collection of songs that gives us a window into a mercurial mind associating freely. Suffused with impressions of the physical world, the narrative reveals an internal landscape that accompanies life in a wounded world. Kahane brings this fully realized set of songs back to Meany after a work-in-process performance in fall 2021. Commissioned by Meany Center.
