Judy Carmichael: Let’s Swing!

October 4, 8 pm Count Basie nicknamed her “Stride,” for conquering this technically and physically demanding early jazz piano style, and jazz writer, Gary Giddons, sagely observed – about Carmichael’s place in the historically male-dominated world of swing piano – “How ironic that the last man standing is a woman.” And standing she is. Outstanding. Pianist. Singer. Raconteuse. Judy is fun. She’s funny. She’s fantastic. Longtime collaborators, guitarist Chris Flory, clarinetist / saxophonist, Dan Block and bassist Neil Miner, will join Judy in this evening of juicy ballads, swinging Standards and unadulterated joy.  Bay Street Theater, www.baystreet.org

An Intimate Evening of Songs and Stories with Graham Nash

October 11, 8 pm The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, two-time Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee, and GRAMMY Award winner, Graham Nash, returns for the first time in three years to the beach stage this fall. Few people have had as much impact on music as this man has. He’s hailed as one of the greatest songwriters and musicians of all time from his time in the Hollies, his solo career, and of course the storied union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young). Don’t miss this legendary performance from this legendary man. Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center, www.whbpac.org
