Rearrange Me

Each of the eight Rearrange Me artists will be secretly assigned one of the other artists. They will then choose a song and perform it as though it was their own. This means that a folk artist, if assigned a hip-hop artist, will rearrange and perform a song by the hip-hop artist in folk style… and so forth.

Each artist will only know their own Rearrange Me assignment, so the audience and the other performers will hear the pieces for the first time together.

Here are the participating artists:

John Manselle-Young/Tang Sauce


Lys Guillorn & Her Band

Frank Critelli

Chica Non Grata

Christopher Bousquet/American Elm

Adam Matlock/An Historic

Leah Lorenzo

The Master of Ceremonies for Rearrange Me will be Allison Holst-Grubbe, a musician and resident of the Parkville section of Hartford.
