Fireside With: Quinn Tsan & Fran
Local Universe presents Firside With, an intimate concert series in Chicago Athletic Association’s Drawing Room.
Masks will be optional but highly encouraged at this show.
On their second album, Leaving, Fran finds us at a crossroads of loss and possibility, borne from the grief of isolation and the existential drama of a warming planet. In spite of this grief, songwriter Maria Jacobson took the solitude of the past few years to commit to seeing reality clearly. Jacobson was inspired by Alan Watts’ Wisdom of Insecurity, which examines the difference between belief and faith: the former inviting constriction and holding on; the latter, presence and letting go. Jacobson sought to let go of the roles and ambitions that had previously defined her.
Quinn Tsan’s music can be found on Bandcamp here.
