NYC-based American Patchwork Quartet (APQ) is on a mission to reclaim the immigrant soul of American Roots Music, drawing on a repertoire of centuries-old American folk songs that highlight America’s immigrant roots.

Old songs are made new through creative arrangements that showcase the diverse talents of its four highly-acclaimed artists – each a U.S. citizen with a unique cultural background. APQ counters pervasive prejudices around issues of race and immigration, encouraging us to acknowledge our differences and discover our commonalities to build lasting bonds across cultures and races.

American Patchwork Quartet features Grammy®-nominated vocalist Falu Shah; Grammy-winning guitarist/vocalist Clay Ross; three-time Grammy-winning drummer Clarence Penn; and highly acclaimed bassist Yasushi Nakamura.

West Street Live Series presented by Neal Pendergraft.
