Caroline Shaw is on BBC World Service’s Music Life with fellow musicians Patrick Watson, Weyes Blood (with whom Vagabon is touring North America this spring), and Flume.

Caroline Shaw is on the latest episode of BBC World Service’s Music Life with fellow musicians Patrick Watson, Weyes Blood (with whom Vagabon will be touring North America this spring), and Flume. They discuss the idea of perfection as a route to self-sabotage, the pressure to share more of one’s personal life, and more. You can hear their conversation via Spotify and Apple Music here:

Evergreen, Caroline Shaw’s new album with Attacca Quartet, has been nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance and made several year’s best lists, including three from NPR Music: favorite lists from critic Nate Chinen and editor Sheldon Pearce (“a stunning ode to the quartet”) and the 10 Best Classical Albums of 2022 (“some of the finest string quartet music of recent times ... irresistible”). You can get it and hear it here.

Caroline Shaw and So Percussion recently completed the first leg of a tour featuring music from their 2021 album, Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part. The tour resumes at The Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, on January 30, followed by shows in Chapel Hill, Philadelphia, New York City, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, and Santa Monica.
