From our recent performance at the BAM R&B Festival in Brooklyn. Lisa sings the song which won a Grammy 30 years ago: ‘How Can I Ease The Pain’
Looking forward to playing 3 more shows with the master Fred Hersch, this time with his regular drummer Eric McPherson! Info below.
Fred’s Interview about the show:
Chamber Music At The Barn (Maize, KS)
Looking forward to performing with two giants of music this year.
Lisa Fischer is an incredible “real deal” Grammy Award winning singer, recently featured in the documentary “20 Feet From Stardom” which won an Oscar, and is just about the most soulful woman I’ve ever met. We have a few shows this Spring, and later in the Summer and Fall things will heat up with more touring. Select dates below:
April 19th – Payomet Performing Arts Center – Provincetown, MA
May 1st – BAM Brooklyn – 651 Arts 25th Anniversary Celebration
September 20th – 57th Annual Monterey Jazz Festival – Monterey, CA
Fred Hersch is a Jazz pianist in an exceptional class of his own. Unique, influential, and masterly, Fred delivers a highly personal story as a composer and player of the piano. I am completely humbled to be playing with this giant of improvised music. We’ll be playing this summer:
June 28/29th at Upstairs Jazz Club – Montreal, Canada
Fred Hersch – piano
Aidan Carroll – double bass
Ross Pederson – drums
Very happy to announce that I surpassed my Indiegogo goal with a total of $6,125 funds raised!
THANKS to all the support from the contributors! I couldn’t have done it without you.
All funds raised from this project will go directly to the creation and completion of my debut album.
