Guitarist Bill Frisell (pictured) is returning to St. Louis to perform at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, April 28 at the Old Rock House.

Frisell's last St. Louis appearance was with his quartet in May 2011 at the ORH. This time, he'll be with the ensemble known as Beautiful Dreamers, which also includes Eyvind Kang on viola and Rudy Royston on drums. (You can read of review a show they did in 2011 at the Village Vanguard here.)

A veteran of more than 30 years on the international music scene, Frisell incorporates a variety of influences into his sound, including jazz, country, folk, Americana, classical, noise, and free improv. He's worked with a diverse range of artists from various genres, including Paul Motian, John Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, Elvis Costello, Bono, T-Bone Burnett, Paul Simon, McCoy Tyner, Ornette Coleman, Brian Eno and Ry Cooder.

Like his previous appearance at ORH, this show is part of their “Listening Room Series," for which the club adds more tables and chairs and offers reserved seating to create a cabaret-type setting. Unlike the previous show, which was 21-and-up only, this one is all ages.

Tickets for Bill Frisell's Beautiful Dreamers at the Old Rock House are $36 for reserved seats, $26 for general admission, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. next Wednesday, February 20 via Metrotix.
