Mare Winningham to Make NY Nightclub Debut, June 17

Academy Award-nominee and two-time Emmy Award-winner Mare Winningham will make her New York nightclub debut on Sunday, June 17th, 2007 at 9:30 p.m. at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater. 

"With a voice that has been compared to the smooth tones of Alison Kraus and the emotion of Emmylou Harris, Winningham is one of America's most highly regarded performing artists.  She has appeared on stage, screen, and in over sixty movies for television and has been honored with an Academy Award-nomination, two Emmy Awards, an Independent Spirit Award, a Golden Globe Award nomination, two Screen Actor's Guild nominations, and a Peabody Award for Excellence in Television," state press materials.

Winningham is also currently making her New York stage debut blocks away in Atlantic Theater Company's world premiere musical 10 Million Miles featuring music and lyrics by Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Patty Griffin (Impossible Dream), a book by Keith Bunin (The Credeaux Canvas) and direction by Tony Award-nominee Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening). 

Winningham rose to fame with her performance in the coming-of-age film St. Elmo's Fire, and over the last twenty years the former "Brat packer" has built a fan base from years of diverse roles including her celebrated turn as a legendary folk singer in the film Georgia and her recent role on the hit series "Grey's Anatomy."  As a singer and musician, Winningham has also toured across the country.  In her evening at Joe's Pub, she will perform an eclectic mix of traditional country bluegrass music as well as selections from her newly released third studio album "Refuge Rock Sublime," a recording of original Jewish country/folk songs with a unique take on traditional Jewish themes. Her other albums include "What Might Be" (1992) and "Lonesomers" (1998).

Winningham's New York debut Joe's Pub concert is produced by Jayson Raitt.
