Hello, Everyone! We are back at work, planning our new season, and there will be lots of new information, new non-profit partners, new dates, and new collaborations to share with you soon soon soon.
In the meantime, though, please let me introduce Justin Hayford!
Justin has performed in cabaret clubs around the country, reviving lost tunes from the Great American Songbook. He’s released three CDs on the LML Music label. He also contributes regularly to the Chicago Reader.
You may remember Justin’s appearance here in South Bend two years ago, on a recital with MFM founder Jennet Ingle. He’s a friend of this series and has graciously agreed to return and give a full concert at Musicians for Michiana’s Fall Fundraiser event!
October 26, 2014, 2:00PM. Location TBD. Watch this space.
George and Ira Gershwin have earned an indelible place in the history of jazz and popular music, writing some of the best-known and best-loved songs in American history. But the hits only scratch the surface of their extraordinary catalog. Join Chicago cabaret performer Justin Hayford as he digs deep into the Gershwin archives and takes you on a guided tour of their rarely heard gems. You’ll learn the stories behind their unlikely partnership, and hear the Gershwin treasures that have been largely – and inexplicably – forgotten.
This will be an event not to miss. Many many thanks to Justin for agreeing to appear!
