Bio

Mother Falcon began as a jam session among a few adventurous high school cellists eager to break out of the rigid repertoire  predominate in their musical training. In the seven years since, violins, saxophones, trumpet, piano, accordion, banjo, guitars and bassoon have joined that small group of cellists in an ...

Those who are familiar with Mother Falcon’s sweepingly beautiful live shows, need no further explanation of how a concert of the Austin ensemble changes one’s perception of great live music. To those who have not have had the pleasure of experiencing a Mother Falcon show: clear your schedule and attend. 

Between the intricate arrangements, the wide array of instruments – including several sets of strings, a vast horn section, a pedal steel guitar and even a bassoon – and the band’s passionate, infectious stage presence it’s not surprising that the band’s music has enamored thousands of people, amongst them personalities such as Bob Boilen, Amanda Palmer and Ben Sollee.

Band to Perform with Grammy-Winning Composer Peter Stopschinski in Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring", December 28 @ Central Presbyterian Church, Austin TX

It’s been an incredible year for Mother Falcon.

Not only has the band earned the distinction of being “the largest ensemble ever to squeeze behind Bob Boilen's desk” during a taping of “Tiny Desk Concerts” at the NPR offices in Washington DC, but they spent most of the year on a highly successful national debut tour that took them from coast to coast, selling out shows from Chicago to San Francisco, Louisville to Portland in support of their latest album, You Knew.

Following a string of buzz-worthy SXSW shows that caught the attention of national programmers last March, the band signed with Red Ryder Entertainment and headed to New York City, where they did a month-long residency in June. They toured nationally all summer long, returning home in late August to play their largest headlining show to date in front of 750 at the Mohawk. Along the way Mother Falcon collaborated with a wide range of artists, including Amanda Palmer, Alejandro Escovedo, Jherek Boschoff, Ben Sollee and Tony Trishka, and have been well received by the press.

Mother Falcon’s final show of 2013 will be a very special night, as they join Grammy-winning composer Peter Stopschinski to perform his world premiere of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” at Central Presbyterian Church on December 28. The collaboration continues a relationship that began when Stopschinski taught composition to several Mother Falcon members in middle school; he has also composed music for The Red Armada Quartet, a teen ensemble of Mother Falcon members.

Not ones, Mother Falcon has already announced East Coast tour dates for January, 2014, and will be announcing West Coast dates for February soon.
