Yann Tiersen at the Lincoln Theatre @ The Lincoln Theatre
May 24 @ 6:30 pm
Yann Tiersen at the Lincoln Theatre @ The Lincoln Theatre

You may know French musician as the mastermind behind the gorgeous soundtrack to the 2001 film Amelie. His body of work goes well beyond that iconic movie, and recently expanded to include his 2018 album “All.” Tiersen’s tenth album couldn’t be more timely, as it deals with the roles and responsibilities of mankind in relation to nature and our roles within the greater scheme of the world, not just to each other. On “All,” Tiersen plays every instrument, and the album features songs in Swedish – and two endangered languages, Breton and Faroese – adding a unique layer to the already apparent magnitude of the record. This tour marks Tiersen’s first in North America in five years, and his stop at the majestic Lincoln Theatre as the backdrop for his incorporation of ethereal and ambient sounds into his music is sure to provide the perfect combination for a stunning night of music.
