Kishi Bashi is his name and quirky-classical multi-instrumental ditties are his game. He cut his teeth as a touring violinist with the likes of Regina Spektor and Of Montreal, and now he is headed to Chevron Festival Gardens with his own brand of fantastical tunes in tow. We asked some not-so-hard-hitting questions to the man himself.

The free drinks!
I've been going through a lot of Leonard Cohen now, for obvious reasons. I have a new appreciation for his poetic genius.

I love to snowboard with my 10 year old daughter.
Earplugs! I usually need a power nap before the show and I can get it virtually anywhere if I've got earplugs
I've been to Perth and it's like a tropical paradise (in fact I feel the same about most of Australia). I love how friendly everybody is :)
