Debra Mann, jazz pianist and vocalist, has performed throughout the northeast corner of the US for 3 decades. She was deeply influenced by the music of Joni Mitchell, from her folk years through her exploration into jazz. Debra's band features the mega talents of Dino Govoni (sax), Steve DeConti (guitar), Dave Zinno (bass), & Marty Richards (drums). Together they interpret the iconic music of Joni Mitchell through a jazz lens. Come join us for a great night of music as we celebrate this rare and highly gifted and influential artist.
Kristen Graves is a singer/songwriter and humanitarian from Fairfield, CT, serving as the current Connecticut State Troubadour. Recently mentioned as 'the new generation of folk' by the New York Times, Kristen performs approximately 175 shows a year throughout the country. Returning to Sandywoods, Kristen will be performing to honor Joni Mitchell and support her friend, Debra Mann. She'll be performing a combination of Joni pieces as well as her own. The audience will be invited to sing, laugh, cry, and enjoy each other as Kristen shares the stories behind her music - from sharing the Lincoln Center stage with Peter Yarrow, to sharing lentil soup and conversation with Pete Seeger - this is a wonderful way to start off a wonderful night!
Music with a conscience, Social justice infused with optimism.
