Classically trained and rigorously detrained, possessor of a restless, semiferal spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher based in Seattle.
Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic is full, textured, committed and original.
A perpetual inquirer, she wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and sanctuaries; she toured with Nirvana and appeared with them in “Unplugged in New York”.
