Erin Cross Set to Sing Nancy Lamott at Don't Tell Mama on 8/5
Erin Cross announces her return to Don't Tell Mama with the third, and pinnacle, concert of the ERIN CROSS Sings Nancy Lamott Concert Series, "Inspirations".
Nancy Lamott was not only a legendary cabaret artist but also a heroine and crusader. Music kept her alive with her best singing prior to her untimely death. She had so much to give that she couldn't leave this earth with anything left over.
This was the moment when Ms. Cross discovered Ms. LaMott; her passing served as Ms. Cross's awakening. Inspired by Ms. LaMott's music, singing, and the core of the incredible woman she was during her life, Cross will continue to carry the torch.
"Inspirations" will feature music of Ms.LaMott's later performances as well as the artists she collaborated with to quite possibly give the best music of her life right before end of her life.
She will be partnered by musical director, Kenneth Gartman, and return with Matthew Carlozzi on drums and director, Donald Garverick.
Nancy Lamott died at the age of 43 just as she was breaking through on the national scene. Her unique qualities as an interpreter of song were honesty, simplicity and intimacy. Each of Erin Cross's four concerts will reflect a different facet of LaMott's artistry.
LaMott's performances and recordings with David Friedman established a new industry standard in cabaret performance.
