Charles Duke Presents: The Orchid Room
Award-winning singer/songwriter Charles Duke presents music and stories from his debut album 'The Orchid Room' live at Pangea.
The Orchid Room explores themes of love and relationship that take place in those safe spaces where people are their truest selves, and those places where people reach and try at connection. A mixture of life experiences and observations, Duke's concert seeks through prose and melody, piano and voice, to touch the matters of the human heart and what occurs where love lives.
