A Sufjan Stevens show will be the most entertaining yet mellow show you’ve ever been to. His most recent release entitled “Carrie & Lowell” came out in March and is quickly becoming a favorite of fans and music critics alike.
“Carrie & Lowell” was recorded by Stevens alongside Casey Foubert, Laura Veirs, Nedelle Torrisi, Sean Carey, Ben Lester and Thomas Bartlett. Thematically, the 11 songs address life and death, love and loss, and the artist’s struggle to make sense of the beauty and ugliness of love. The album is named for Stevens’ mother and stepfather and is a return to Stevens’ folk roots.
Sufjan Stevens performs at the Altria Theater on Wednesday, May 6.
