Good Morning, Music Lovers! We’ve got a new addition to the women of The Mermaid Lounge, and her name is Eva Cassidy. We think you’ll love her as much as we do.
Here’s today’s line-up:
11:00 a.m. In the Spotlight: The Music of John Lennon
Seems like a John Lennon kind of day here in the lounge, so we’ve got a spotlight feature for you…and us.
3:00 p.m. Eva Cassidy Live at Blues Alley, Georgetown, Washington, D.C. NEW!
To be quite honest, I had not heard of Eva Cassidy until a friend told me to find her music and listen. So I did. There could be a reason why I did not have the opportunity to know her stuff, and it’s because she didn’t live long enough to become a star. Eva Cassidy passed away from cancer at the age of 33 back in 1966. Her album, Songbird, sold over five million copies worldwide. This is a do not miss performance. And yes, Eva’s music has been added to the standard rotation as well.
7:00 p.m. Album of The Week: Heart of Mine by Maria Muldaur
We are winding down on our Album of the Week. We’ll have one more airing of this one Saturday, before we choose a new release for next week. For those of you who did not know Dylan had a romantic side, and that Maria Muldaur has such a great voice and interpretive skills, I suggest you listen in.
In fact, I suggest you listen in period. Because you have to pay to get this kind of music elsewhere. And by the way, there is absolutely no music outlet who features women. Not even the ones you have to subscribe to.
