Herdman, Priscilla Into The Stars: Wonders of the Night Sky Music
INTO THE STARS: This program presents an inspired collection of songs that celebrate the beauty of the night sky and the wonder of the universe. It draws on songs from Priscilla's CD, INTO THE STARS and others, including some from her previous 12 recordings. Herdman's long-time love of all things celestial and her fascination with the Hubble Space Telescope photographs, led her to gather these songs which relate both literally and metaphorically to the universe and night sky. In 30 years of performing and recording, Priscilla Herdman has established herself as an insightful songfinder and a singer of uncommon beauty, depth and clarity. Her insightful interpretations and compelling stage presence continue to bring rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Priscilla is a NY state native and lives in the Hudson River Valley Region. She has recently joined forces with Massachusetts guitarist Max Cohen, whose exquisite finger-style playing is a perfect complement to Priscilla's elegant and powerful vocals.
