LIVE on Vimeo: Love People Be Kind CABARET _ 26mar2020; 6pmEST

March 25, 2020

Tune in to a LIVE performance (from my socially-distanced living room) Thursday, March 26th 2020; 6pm EST.

It’ll be live on VIMEO, I have la voce, but no pianist (guess I’ll be filling in at the keys, let’s see what happens THERE). It’ll be some songs, some poetry, some oyster costumes, some schtick. You know.. a run of the mill Thursday evening.

Swing on by…

A note on the above photo: that’s moi in the center, all leopardy-and-red. The gorgeous set of eyes peering out from the right edge of this screenshot (from the Teachers College, Columbia University website) belong to Yolanda, an extraordinarily wise, talented, must-be-heard poet who is doing something (via that same Vimeo channel) on Friday night. LOTS to check out on the Teachers College site.

This concert gives us the chance to present an exquisite collection of songs by Edvard Grieg. In Opus 26, Grieg sets to music a group of poems by John Paulsen: Et håb, Jeg reiste en deilig sommerkvaeld, Den aergjerrige, Med en primula veris, På skogstien.

Leave it to me to find a song by Grieg that mentions knitting! It’s a gorgeous set and I’ve chosen to pair it with a selection of songs from the Great American Songbook, mirroring the themes in the Grieg songs. Also, with the knitting reference, I take license to sing one of the knitting songs written for me by Stefania de Kenessey from the “Twisted Stitch” song cycle in my OperaKnit Cabaret.

You are most welcome to join us for what will be a lovely and eclectic concert.

NOTE TO KNITTERS and those who find themselves to be even the teensiest bit KNITTING-CURIOUS 😉 ….  You might have noticed that the watermark image that provides a backdrop to the text in this poster is a close-up of a piece of knitting. It is an improvisational knitted lace mandala. Made up of three sections, it begins in the center with a representation of the sun and other stars, then moves outward to the sky and water of the earth, then transforms into a representation of the flowers of the earth, with the outermost part taking its inspiration from the Dwarf Trout Lily. This particular version of this magical little flower grows only on a few stream beds in Southern Minnesota. My brother, a talented and prolific painter, brought me to this special landscape. He is working on a series of paintings of this region throughout the seasons of the year.  When I knitted this piece–a round-shaped imagining of the stars, the earth, and the flowers and waters thereof–I had just experienced a most wonderful concert of music performed by Mari Boine in New York. This piece is greatly influenced by that experience. If you’d like to read more about that, see my blog post from June of 2015 Improv Lace Knitting inspired of Sami song & the Minnesota dwarf trout lily
