Cynthia Sayer to Premiere THE BANJO SHOW at Joe's Pub, 3/7Cynthia Sayer to Premiere THE BANJO SHOW at Joe's Pub, 3/7
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2014

CYNTHIA SAYER, the internationally celebrated jazz banjoist, will lead her all-star quartet in 'The Banjo Show' at Joe's Pub at the Public in a rare New York City concert appearance on Friday, March 7 at 7:00 PM. The founding member of Woody Allen's jazz band, who honed her virtuoso chops playing with many legendary artists, is on a mission to popularize the 4-string banjo, the cultured cousin of the familiar 5-string bluegrass banjo. Sayer's vocals are divine and her banjo a driving force of nature - think Django Reinhardt meets Bela Fleck - as she swings her audience through the colorful story and surprising range of what the 4-string can do, including hot jazz, tango, Great American Songbook, vaudeville, classical, roots music and more. Joe's Pub at the Public located at 425 Lafayette Street in Manhattan. Tickets: $20. For more information: T: (212) 967-7555 or www.joespub.com or www.cynthiasayer.com. (more...)
