Lucy Kaplansky is a rare vocal talent, "a truly gifted performer...full of enchanting songs" (New York Times). Blending country, folk and pop styles, she makes every song sound fresh, whether singing her own sweet originals, covering country classics by June Carter Cash and Gram Parsons, or singing pop favorites by Lennon/McCartney and Nick Lowe. A Billboard-charting singer and one of the top-selling artists on Red House Records, Lucy has topped the folk and Americana radio charts and has been featured on shows throughout the world from NPR's Weekend and Morning Editions to BBC Radio to CBS Sunday Morning. As an in-demand harmony singer, Lucy has sung on countless records, performing with Suzanne Vega, Bryan Ferry, Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin and was named one of the nation's Top 25 Female Vocalists (Alternate Root).
Tonight Lucy will be celebrating the release of her newest record, "Everyday Street." This collection of songs weaves together stories of joy, friendship, family, loss and discovery. It is somewhat of a departure sonically: stripped down, spontaneous, acoustic, with the feel of one of her concerts. The songs were recorded over four days with her long-time collaborator Duke Levine on acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandola, National guitar, and octave mandolin, and Lucy on acoustic guitar, mandolin and piano.
