The Few

The Few brings together three of the most dynamic string players from the latest generation of Chicago's storied improvised music community - Macie Stewart (violin / voice), Charlie Kirchen (bass), Steve Marquette (guitar) - forming an improvising, acoustic trio that seamlessly blends their wide ranging influences into a singular whole. In 2017 they released "Fragments of a Luxury Vessel" - their debut LP - on Marquette's Two Cities Label.

"I hear The Few not as working dialectically to the previous improvised music in Chicago (or elsewhere), but as creating a different aesthetic hybrid, one which deals with stylistic concerns that come out of regional Americana, some jazz, some new music components, aspects of the English school, and other factors, like the individual creative character of Steve, Macie, and Charlie, put into a true group context." - Ken Vandermark
