Led Zeppelin bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones's new side project, Sons of Chipotle, will make their U.S. live debut at the 2020 Big Ears Festival, which takes place March 26-29 in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The four-day event will feature performances by more than 100 artists, held at about a dozen venues in downtown Knoxville. The festival also will include film screenings, literary events, talks and discussions, workshops, exhibit and more.
Four-day passes will go on sale this Thursday, October 10, at 12 p.m. local time. Single-day tickets will be available at a later date.
Sons of Chipotle is a duo that also features lauded Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen. Jones plays piano and electronics, while Karttunen plays cello and electronics. According to a post on Jones's official website, the two musicians "cover an uncommonly vast area of the musical map." The project played its first live shows last month in Tokyo and South Korea.
Jones and Karttunen previously performed together in a trio called Tres Coyotes that also featured Finnish pianist Magnus Lindberg at concerts in Helsinki, Finland, and Turin, Italy, this past April and May, respectively.
