Sylvan Esso Announces Concert Film With
Sylvan Esso has announced WITH. Sylvan Esso’s Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn recruited a dream team 10-piece ensemble – musicians that perform with Bon Iver, Wye Oak, Mountain Man, Hiss Golden Messenger, Mandolin Orange, Hand Habits, and Mr. Twin Sister – and set out on the limited engagement fall 2019 WITH tour that found their songs reaching expansive new realms. This pivotal moment included two sold-out shows at New York’s Beacon Theatre, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and Los Angeles’ Disney Hall. The WITH tour culminated with two sold-out hometown shows at Durham Performing Arts Center, captured in this live concert film.
Sylvan Esso on WITH
“We knew that in order to put on the best show we possibly could in a few short weeks we had to truly lean on and trust the friends we had asked to become part of our band. The end result – as with so many communal efforts – was much greater than the sum of its parts, in ways we could have never dreamed of. The world has completely shifted in a few months – the idea of togetherness rings in a different way. It was such a special moment that now feels like a signpost of how things were and how they could be again.”
