Emerson Avenue Salons Proudly Presents
Two for a Song: Plus One
Doug Bowles and Alex Hassan are back at Emerson Street with more laughter, merriment, touching songs and stories; beloved songs you know and plenty of exciting new discoveries from their research into the lost and forgotten Songs of the Great American Song Book. The guys will be joined by actress and singer, Jennifer Timberlake (Kennedy Center; Round House, Olney Theatre).As usual, the warblers and pianoodler will introduce you to some amazing “new” songs of the 20s and 30s that may become your new favorites. This performance will be the world premier of two new transcriptions/arrangements of songs by beloved 1920s songstress, recording artist and broadway performer Esther Walker, as interpreted by the lovely Miss Jenn… a rarely heard, but exquisite tune by Jerome Kern… and a selection of tunes you will, no doubt want to sing along with. Alex’s Flying fingers will do their usual magic with recent arrangements of his own piano solos.
You Can’t Go Wrong with Two For a Song!
This is a “normal” salon — the performance is free (we’ll provide a donation basket for the musicians) but each attendee is asked to bring food and beverage (e.g., wine.) Please bring more food than you will eat — we are providing for the musicians and their families.
6:30: Arrive & chat; hors d’oeuvres
8:30 Pot-Luck Dinner
Any other questions are likely answered on the “Tradition Page”. If you’d like to attend this salon, we’d love to have you come!
