Bill Murray Joins Cellist Jan Vogle For Music And Spoken Word Tour
Bill Murray is going on tour with a chamber music trio for a program of songs and literary readings.
Murray will be promoting the album New Worlds. The record is a collaboration between Murray, famed cellist Jan Vogler, violinist Mira Wang and others.
Murray will read selections from famous American authors such as Walt Whitman, Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway while the classical ensemble plays Bach, Schubert, Piazzolla and more.
The program will premiere in the U.S. on July 20 at California’s Festival Napa Valley. A recording of “New Worlds” is planned for release in August.
The project started back in early 2013, when Murray and Vogler met on a flight from Berlin to New York. They quickly struck up a friendship, and Murray even invited Vogler to the Poets House’s annual poetry walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Shortly after, the began seriously developing the project, then titled “Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends.”
