MAUDE MAGGART - the acclaimed vocalist hailed as "singular and arresting" by the New York Times, made her debut at the Café Carlyle with a special engagement from February 25 to March 1. Check out photos from the engagement below!
Her new show "The Door Opened" features numbers by golden-age songwriters Irving Berlin ("I Used To Be Color Blind"), Harry Warren ("Serenade In Blue") and Dorothy Fields ("Blue Again"), in addition to rarely-heard songbook gems including "Why Am I So Romantic?" (introduced in the legendary Marx Brothers film Animal Crackers) and "I May Be Wrong, But I Think You're Wonderful" (performed by Maude's grandmother). The evening features Music Director John Boswell on piano.
MAUDE MAGGART started her performing career in the clubs of New York and Los Angeles before exploding into a compelling international concert artist. She has been featured on NPR's "Morning Edition," a Time Out New York cover story and Entertainment Weekly's "Must List." Her recordings have been heard on national radio broadcasts of "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor and are frequently featured by Jonathan Schwartz on WNYC / New York Public Radio. Her most recent album was a USA Today's "Pick of the Week."
Fostered by Andrea Marcovicci and Michael Feinstein, Maude has performed at nightclubs around the country, notably her annual engagement at The Algonquin Hotel, from 2003 through 2011. She has headlined shows at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in Australia, the Oregon Festival of American Music - led by legendary bandleader Dick Hyman, Chicago's Steppenwolf Theater Company, New York's Downtown River to River Festival, Guild Hall in East Hampton, the Hudson Opera House, the Bridgeport Playhouse, the Palm Beach Pops and the 92nd Street Y "Lyrics & Lyricists" series.
