Melissa Hammans, Debra Barsha & Amy Jones Set for BACK TO THE GARDEN at 54 Below, 4/23
Back to the Garden celebrates folk-rock trailblazers Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Laura Nyro. Challenged by the traditional images of women in the music industry, they bravely explored territory outside the accepted confines of popular music. These prolific singer-songwriters paved the way for women in music, art and life. Back to the Garden honors these women, their influence, and inspiration. The evening boasts the talents of Melissa Hammans (Company, Smokey Joe's Cafe), Shaleah Adkisson (Hair, Rent), and Maddy Wyatt (Band of Wyatt). Directed by Amy Jones (Good Ol' Girls, Broadway Backwards). Musical Direction by Debra Barsha (Jersey Boys, Radiant Baby)
