Songwriters In The Round - Season Premiere
Lisa Redfern brings three talented Maine songwriters to perform in an intimate, unplugged setting in Frontier's theatre for an evening of compelling songs and stories.
As a performing songwriter Martin Swinger is recognized for his astounding body of award-winning original songs, invariably winning accolades and awards from songwriters, competitions and music educators. Astounding voice and songs that GRAB you! He is co-founder of the improvisational a cappella group, ImproVox and leads improvisational singing workshops for teens and adults. Martin Swinger sings Songs Worth Listening To.
"Pure musical poetry" (The Courier), Herscovitch is a singer-songwriter on the rise blending modern acoustic/folk, blues, jazz, and pop influences. With her voice "clear and smooth like expensive liquor," she stands "above and beyond the pack" (Northeast Performer). Herscovitch is "a remarkable performer" (WSHU Public Radio), also with rich experience as a policy social worker focused on juvenile justice, education, and community development. Echoes of these themes resonate throughout her music.
The last of six children born into a musical family, Ed DesJardins fell into a well established artistic bed and sites his earliest memory as sitting in his crib at the age of two hearing the low bass sounds of his brothers' band resonating from the attic above. Ed is a multi instrumentalist, producer, recordist, and songwriter. His first solo CD "Innerspace" was released in June of 2010. A collection of 10 honest and poignant songs, Innerspace is a rich sonic tapestry woven from DesJardins' many and diverse musical influences.
