VOXECSTATIC: MARY FOSTER CONKLIN

March 7 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm

| $10

Deborah Latz, curator; Mary Foster Conklin, voice; Deanna Witkowski, piano; Ed Howard, bass

Vocalist and radio host Mary Foster Conklin celebrates Women’s History Month with a new project: “A Broad Spectrum – Chapter 2: Women, Jazz & Blues,” honoring women lyricists and composers of jazz standards and classic blues. Included in the evening will be songs by Lil Green, Alberta Hunter, Sippie Wallace, Peggy Lee, Annie Ross, Nancy Hamilton and many others. Come for the music, stay for the stories. Mary, a tireless ‘song hound,’ has done many shows highlighting women writers both past and present and this is her latest take on the subject. Her recent recording, PHOTOGRAPHS was released in 2016 to critical acclaim and worldwide airplay. She hosts a weekly radio show called “A Broad Spectrum – the Ladies of Jazz” on WFDU HD2. “Scratch her witty tough-girl- from Jersey patter and you’ll find a sensitive artist (but not frail) with a wide-ranging boldly colored voice and an open ear for off-beat material.–” The Washington Post”

“A lush, sultry and charmingly swinging set that further establishes her rep as a “song hound” extraordinaire… Conklin’s eclectic and soulful musical photographs showcase her extraordinary depth.”- Music Connections
