With a repertoire reaching back to Bach and continuing to Taylor Swift, the Portland Cello Project continue to blur the lines between classical and modern composers.

The Cello Project will spend early 2015 on the road to support their latest release, “to. e.s.,” a 12-song studio album paying homage to Elliott Smith. To e.s. features instrumental covers of the Portland songwriter’s music, as well pieces by contemporary composers that were inspired by Smith.

 Here's the original. 

The Portland Cello Project will be at Harlow’s in Sacramento this Thursday and bandmember Diane Chaplin joins us ahead of the performance to talk about the new album.
