Baby Dee is a trans-gender street legend and sideshow veteran, who was at times notorious to ride around New York on a gigantic trike with her harp attached to it, also using it as a makeshift stage for concerts (see promo shot above).
The former tree cutter and cantor of a catholic parish in the Bronx has been touring extensively with Current 93 and Marc Almond, wrote arrangements for Antony And The Johnsons and has collaborated with every one from Bonnie Prince Billy to Little Annie.
She presents songs from her breath-taking new album “I Am A Stick” for the first time in Germany. An offering which she recorded with what she calls “her dream band”: An all star cast of international musicians who will also join her for the tour.
Londoner Joe Carvell is a double bassist famed for his collaboration with Mantler. The Spanish guitar hero Victor Herrero will be no unknown name to the avid Berlin music listener for his work with his wife Josephine Foster.
“My music is very much at home in a church setting. My most formative musical influences are mostly pre-renaissance, and polyphonic in nature – Gregorian, the Glogauer Liederbuch, Palestrina, Morales, Victoria – and my preferred form is the parody mass and it’s clever nephew the chorale prelude… For me, music history kind of ended where for most people it begins – with the Bach Chorale Preludes.” Baby Dee
