I’m excited about the upcoming recital at the new Middlebury Song Fest this Friday evening, May 18. Favorite songs written in the recent past, very accessible tunes on New England poets, with a bit of improvisation and whimsy thrown in. Peter Cirka on piano, (until I play on my own arrangement of a Ricky Ian Gordon tune). We’ll also teach the audience a few settings of Emmas Lazarus’ famous “Give me your tired…” and a fun song about the library by Deborah Henson-Conant.
Bonus for Boston area friends: an open dress rehearsal at the JP branch of the public library on Wednesday May 26, 2:30-3:30. (30 South Street, Jamaica Plain, downstairs).
