The morning after the 2016 presidential election, singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane packed a suitcase and set out, with no cell phone or internet connection, on a 9,000 mile railway journey around the United States, in an attempt to better understand his country. Over the course of two weeks spent talking to strangers in Amtrak dining cars, he encountered an array of fellow citizens — cowboys, postmasters, religious luddites, national park conservationists, drifters, and sea-steading software engineers — who, taken together, amount to nothing less than an American mosaic.

Over the last decade, Kahane has quietly established himself as one of the leading exponents of American song, grafting a deep interest in character and narrative to a keen sense of harmony and rhythm. «8980: Book of Travelers» — the highly anticipated follow-up to his acclaimed stage piece «The Ambassador» presented as part of CAP UCLA’s 14-15 season — offers an expansive exploration of American history, regionalism, and the history of travel itself, all couched in a collection of songs as personal as any Kahane has written.
