Join us for the US debut tour of Illegal Crowns, a collective quartet that brings together the long-time collaborative trio of guitarist Mary Halvorson, drummer Tomas Fujiwara, and cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum with the French pianist Benoît Delbecq. All four artists are critically recognized as leading figures in contemporary music, and have created multiple original compositions written specifically for this group. 

The band has recorded two albums (the self-titled debut album released in 2016, and “The No-Nosed Puppet” released in 2019, both on the RogueArt label) and has toured throughout Europe and Canada, and will be making its long overdue US debut with this tour. Tour support from Jazz Roads/South Arts, and the French-American Cultural Exchange (FACE) Foundation.

Featured Artists:

Benoît Delbecq: piano 

Tomas Fujiwara: drums

Mary Halvorson: guitar

Taylor Ho Bynum: cornet
