Abud: A Bard
One-Man Band and storyteller in the Chicago area who performs upbeat, theatrical acoustic music.
“Abud: A Bard” is the tangible manifestation of James Abud’s musical research and lifelong dedication to the absurd. This bombastic and exciting One-Man show is founded on original acoustic works grounded in American folk, jazz, and theater music. It features Abud's earthy virtuosity, chummy pathos, and enormous beard.
In addition to the music, “Abud: A Bard” is filled with hilarious and sentimental tales of a life dedicated to music, family, and adventure; being on the road, in the classroom, and the glamorous life of a lifelong performer.
