Blue O'Connell on Walk Right In

Blue O'Connell
on Walk Right In
Tuesday October 4, 2011, 1pm

Local singer/songwriter/guitarist Blue O'Connell will visit Rebecca on Walk Right In. Blue's long awaited CD, "Choose the Sky" is a musical tapestry of introspective songs that draw the listener in from the first note. Whether it is her intricate accompaniment of her songs or inventive solo instrumental pieces, one can immediately hear all the years of serious woodshed. Themes of nature always make their way into her music with songs titled, "Once I Was the Wind", "Transcriptions (of a Wasp's Nest)," and "Owl's Dream". While most of the songs were composed in recent years, a few of them go all the way back to 1989. A very interesting portrait from a what John McCutcheon calls "uniquely compelling songwriter".

The CD also features harmony vocals by local songstress Mary Gordon Hall and cello by Peter Markush.
