Fred Lonberg-Holm is a cellist/improvisor/composer based in Chicago, known for his work with the Ken Vandermark 5, Friction Brothers, Lightbox Orchestra, Valentine Trio and numerable others. Performing alongside legendary players like Peter Brotzmann and Joe McPhee, he has carved out a distinct sound as a cellist and improvisor, and has earned a spot in the contemporary canon of daring, exploratory music. Stirrup is his new project, which combines the textural ferocity of Friction Brothers with the complex modern jazz sound of Valentine Trio.
