John Paul Jones is coming to the United States. Knoxville, Tennessee, to be exact.

The legendary Led Zeppelin bass player is set to debut his new band, Sons of Chipotle, in America at this year's Big Ears Festival, scheduled for March 26-29, 2020. The group, which is a duo featuring Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen, was revealed earlier this year as a project that will “cover an uncommonly vast area of the musical map.”

"It is incredibly rare to find two of the finest musicians in the world improvising together, but following 6 sold out concerts in South Korea and Japan, the next stop for Sons of Chipotle is Knoxville, Tennessee," reads the band's listing on the Big Ears website. "Both musicians are known to be curious minds, always ready to learn and to discover. When they improvise, borders disappear, they are free to migrate beyond prejudices, across continents. In a world where walls are being built and people are told where they cannot go, Sons of Chipotle want music to be a place of openness."

During the performances, Jones will play piano while Karttunen will man his cello.

Daily tickets and weekend passes for the Big Ears Festival are available here.
