Jacob Matheus
and everything in particular

Thriving at a state of high lyricism and high danger, the Jacob Matheus Group is determined to introduce the art of free improvisation to the traditions of European written music. Featuring the works of Matheus, interwoven with collectively improvised ventures, the ensemble evokes a strikingly familiar conversational dynamic, playfully traveling through influences of folk, jazz and 20th century classical music with graceful facility and artistic prowess. Guitar, harp, strings, bass and percussion.
