The Happy Maladies

On Sunday, March 15, Cincinnati acoustic chamber-folk quartet The Happy Maladies performed at Institute 193 as part of their tour for their newest album. The group performed original music, as well as comissioned compositions from the album Must Love Cats. Combining elements of folk traditions with the spirit of chamber music and the energy of a composer’s collective, The Happy Maladies create colorful and deeply personal music from their home in Cincinnati. Their exploration of song form, harmonic play, technical agility, and nuanced improvisations make their music raw, unique, and potent -a wildly creative voice in the world of acoustic new music.
