Upcoming Shows with Lisa Fischer and Fred Hersch

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
