HOTLINE MEMBER CABARET EVENT TONIGHT INSYRACUSE, NYC: KAREN OBERLIN - THE SINGULAR SONGS OF ELVIS COSTELLO
Karen Oberlin comes to her home town this weekend, Friday & Saturday, February 19th & 20th, to perform at THE RED HOUSE (201 S West St, Syracuse, NY - 315-425-0405) with her acclaimed tribute to the varied music of Elvis Costello. Showtime both evenings is 8:00 pm. She is joined by her musical director Tedd Firth on piano, Sean Harkness on guitar and Tom Hubbard on bass. Karen has been a fan of Elvis Costello since her early teens, when his young angst, disillusionment and vulnerable heart seemed perfectly in synch with her own. One of the most versatile and prolific contemporary artists, over the years Elvis has delved into innumerable genres and styles with passion and intelligence, including classical, jazz and pop. His many collaborative partners have included Burt Bacharach, the Brodsky String Quartet, Paul McCartney, Bill Frisell and the Jazz Passengers. For her new show, Karen brings forth a collection of material from her more than 30 years of following his eclectic, fascinating career to express some of the most intriguing elements of this unique singer/songwriter's work and life. Hailed as one of the "saviors of the American Songbook", Karen Oberlin believes that if one takes a close and discerning look, that songbook is still being written. She is a recipient of the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Donald F. Smith Award, along with Bistro, multiple MAC awards, and an honorary doctorate in music. Her recordings are often featured on Jonathan Schwartz's radio show and she has headlined at all the major New York nightclub venues, including the Algonquin's Oak Room, Feinstein's at the Regency, the Cafe Carlyle, Birdland, Metropolitan Room, Kitano and 54 Below. She has performed at concert halls such as Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Town Hall and Caramoor, and her performances take her all over the world, including her annual engagements in London. Call for reservations and cover/minimum information.
