    Bill Frisell, Glenn Kotche Perform at MusicNOW Festival This Week

    Bill Frisell and Glenn Kotche will be on hand in Cincinnati, Ohio, this week as the third annual MusicNOW festival, organized by native son Bryce Dessner of The National, gets under way at Memorial Hall tonight. The four-day festival, which, in its first two years, featured artists like Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond, and Clogs, welcomes for this year's concerts a broad array of performers, including composer Nico Muhly, avante-garde ensemble Bang on a Can, Brooklyn-based band Grizzly Bear, and The Dirty Projectors.

    Kotche performed in the inaugural MusicNOW in 2006, with Bang on a Can All-Star percussionist David Cossin, and returns this Friday to perform with Dessner and Bang on a Can on a double bill with Dirty Projectors. Frisell makes his MusicNOW debut tomorrow night in a performance with his 858 Quartet (Eyvind Kang, Hank Roberts, and Jenny Scheinman) and classical guitarist Benjamin Verdery.
