About Mackenzie Shivers
Recording artist and composer Mackenzie Shivers makes her Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in "Shivers & Strings: The Unkindness." Alongside a string quartet and upright bass, Shivers performs songs from her critically acclaimed 2019 release "The Unkindness," an album that stands like a powerful army with resilient soldiers on the battle lines fighting against the “unkindness” that appears in the world. Featuring the talents of bassist Yuka Tadano ("Smokey Joe’s Café," "The Lightning Thief"), multi-instrumentalists Sarah Elizabeth Haines ("Hamilton," "Natasha," "Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812") and Claire Wellin ("Once"), violinist Camellia Hartman, cellist Jon Chen, and Shivers herself on piano and vocals, the evening is sure to allure and charm each listener, pulling them into a stunning musical terrain.
Special guests: Kenyon Phillips ("Unisex Salon," "The Life and Death of Kenyon Phillips"), Jess Clinton, and Georgia Sackler.
