Montalbine, Diane Out Of My Dreams- Diane Perry-Jazz violin and vocals Music
I am a Juilliard-trained classical violinist who has been performing jazz for over 20 years. I currently am doing a music program suitable for all ages, with either piano or keyboard, (or guitar) and prefer to also add bass, and drums, or a guest instrumentalist as well. The program is called Out Of My Dreams after the title of my new CD, and I perform standards and not-so-standard songs from the canon of the American Popular Songbook, as well as originals. I sing and play jazz violin, and even occasionally sneak in a classical piece for fun. Some of the songs are presented in such a way that people can sing along if they wish, and it is designed to be entertaining and fun for the audience, not merely a concert where quiet reigns, and I like to use humor and stories of where the songs came from to enrich the program.

Durst, James WORK O' THE WEAVERS: Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Multicultural- Other,
Music
WORK O' THE WEAVERS celebrates Pete Seeger's lifetime legacy, Lee Hays' (1914-1981) Centenary & The WEAVERS' inestimable contribution to our collective musical consciousness. Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, The WEAVERS (Pete Seeger, Lee Hays, Ronnie Gilbert & Fred Hellerman) ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness & exuberance not heard before, they enjoyed surprising success until being caught up in the Cold War anti-communist witchhunts of McCarthyism and HUAC, blacklisted & driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert & Vanguard LP of the event gave heart to a generation, kindling the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folksinger would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story & timeless songs. Faithful to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Martha Sandefer & Mark Murphy) includes the beloved songs, as well as some the Weavers might be singing today. An edifying narrative interweaves throughout, supported by PowerPoint visuals. More than a tribute, it's an affectionate homáge. Rousing, refreshing & relevant!
