Westbound Situation is pushing the boundaries of chamber music forward. Four young, talented, acoustic musicians with instrumental prowess only surpassed by love of collaboration have brought their diverse musical backgrounds together to create an exciting result. With each member being one of the most highly regarded young players in genres ranging from roots, to classical and jazz, Westbound Situation fuses these musical influences into a unique original repertoire. Westbound Situation blends the precision of classical chamber music, the rhythmic drive of bluegrass, and the colorful expression of jazz into a new style of chamber music—chambergrass. The quartet—comprising Grant Flick on violin, Matt Davis on banjo, Zach Brown on cello, and Jacob Warren on bass—mixes composition and improvisation seamlessly into their entirely memorized arrangements. They come to The Ark tonight with new music.
