Taking its name from a beloved American folk song, Wayfaring is a duo project between bassist/vocalist Katie Ernst and clarinetist James Falzone. What began as a casual meeting between like-minded players has formed into a collective of unusual nuance and depth, drawing on source material from the jazz tradition, hymns, folk songs, and original compositions from Ernst and Falzone. Wayfaring was featured at the 2016 Hyde Park Jazz Festival and will release their debut recording, I Move, You Move, in Fall 2017 on the Allos Documents label. A live recording of the duo was included on Constellation's 2015 compilation Nine/Two, featuring many of Chicago's finest jazz and improvised music artists.
