Hawkins, Jim Irish Stories and Songs Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
A program of Irish Stories and Songs taken from a variety of themes in Irish history, folklore, culture and tradition. Most of the stories and songs are humorous, though serious pieces in relation to the above themes can be performed. The program is crafted towards adults, but I have found that children of all ages have enjoyed the stories and songs. Some of the stories ("God and the Devil Dividing the People") are personal and others such as "The White Doe," "The Boy who Had No Story" and "Robert Emmet's 'Speech from the Dock'" are taken from Irish folklore and history. I also include the stories of Eamon Kelly in my performances. In the course of the performance, I discuss aspects of Irish history, cultiure and tradition and encourage the audience to speak of their own Irish roots.

The Zack Lipton Quintet is an active performing and recording unit in New York's vibrant Jazz scene. Formed in the fall of 2005, the Zack Lipton Quintet is a collective of musicians committed to dismantling popular notions of the boundaries between musical idioms. The band uses original compositions as a vehicle for synthesizing its members' eclectic tastes without compromising the integrity of any of its influences. Drawing from influences as diverse as John Coltrane and Stevie Wonder, the band performs music that is both intellectually and artistically advanced while remaining culturally relevant. Performances consist of performing mostly original works as well as some inventive takes on standard repertoire. Sets can be as short as 45 minutes and as long as 90 minutes. Between tunes, Zack will generally introduce the band and also provide commentary suitable to the level of the audience to contextualize the songs played.
