Judith-Kate Friedman brings original songs and improvisations on themes of love, liberty and justice to Seattle on March 1st at the Keystone Church Social Hall in Wallingford.|
An award-winning songwriter, vocalist and producer, Friedman blends folk, roots, jazz, blues, choral/world music traditions and improvisation in concerts full of grace, groove and heart. Her songwriting has been called "cinematic," her voice "mesmerizing," and her rapport with audiences "masterful." On stage, she moves deftly between classic original love songs, historic tales, lyric ballads, and stories of courage, humor, and inspiration.
Of her approach to songwriting Friedman says:
"I appreciate songs that carry truth and vision, sorrow and joy, laughter and grit side by side. My hope is to hold this balance in my music and to move us all forward."
She adds: "As Pete Seeger said: 'Participation is what's going to save the human race.' There'll be a good many opportunities to sing together and harmonize at this concert."
In addition to her concerts and recordings, Judith-Kate teaches songwriting and voice and is internationally recognized as a pioneer in arts and health. She founded and directs Songwriting Works Educational Foundation, has co-written hundreds of songs with thousands of older adults in care and community settings, and writes and speaks internationally on the role of music in brain health.
A 2012 Distinguished Fellow of the Global Alliance for Arts and Health, and recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Judith-Kate lives in Port Townsend. This is her first concert in Seattle in several years.
