Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will embark on his first-ever orchestral tour in February. The guitarist is set to perform new arrangements of Phish songs and his solo material with a full orchestra conducted by Scott Dunn. The tour, which will hit four cities in the United States, will feature a local symphony at each stop.

Though this will be Anastasio's first time touring with orchestral arrangements, he performed his concerto Time Turns Elastic with both the New York Philharmonic and the Baltimore Symphony in 2009.

The dates for Anastasio's Winter Symphony Tour are as follows:

2/9  Atlanta, GA - Atlanta Symphony Hall  
2/14 Pittsburgh, PA - Heinz Hall
2/28 Denver, CO - Boettcher Concert Hall  
3/10 Los Angeles, CA - Walt Disney Concert Hall

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
