Spero Plays Nyro
Laura Nyro was the quintessential singer/songwriter/pianist. Her groundbreaking music crossed the genres of folk, rock and jazz and she was one of the most covered artists in the 1960's and 1970's (Eli's Coming, Stoned Soul Picnic, Wedding Bell Blues, Sweet Blindness). Her tragically premature passing in 1997 shocked her fans. Finally, in 2012 she was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.

The Christine Spero Group will bring their own kind of power to Laura Nyro's music. Christine Spero has loved Laura's music from a young age when she was given "Eli and the Thirteenth Confession" by a radio DJ friend. She was inspired by Laura's music to be bold in writing, singing and playing piano and was the Winner of the 2004 USA Songwriting Competition in the Jazz Category. Her CDs are listened to around the world. Joining Christine will be Elliot Spero on horns and percussion, Scott Petito on bass, and Peter O'Brien on drums. The group will also be performing some of Christine's original compositions.
