Carnegie Hall

The Music of David Byrne and Talking Heads at Carnegie Hall

I was happy to serve as the host for the Music of David Byrne and Talking Heads last night. I was perched side stage at Carnegie Hall for it all, introducing each artist. This is the 11th benefit show produced and curated by Michael Dorf and what a winner this one was! The material is not necessarily easy to cover but with Antibalas as house band and the stage full of some of the best drummers and percussionists in the business, these songs were nailed.

FUV Live at Zankel Hall 2014-15

It is an honor to once again curate a series of shows at Carnegie's Zankel Hall. Zankel is a beautiful, comfortable venue and the perfect spot to see Valerie June and Shawn Colvin. Each season I get to invite artists to play here, and as you would imagine it becomes a very special performance, not just another stop on the tour. I'm especially pleased to present a classic legendary songwriter like Shawn Colvin alongside a cool emerging artist like Valerie June.

Get your tickets now for these shows, they're sure to sell out.
