July 29th :: Music at Twilight
Where: Lawn of the Museum
When: 5:00-7:30 pm
Performing: Lara Herscovitch
“Pure musical poetry” (The Courier), Lara Herscovitch’s music is an original blend of modern folk with blues, jazz & pop influences. With a voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor” (Northeast Performer), her music is “expertly written prose, songwriting at its best; good for your ears AND your soul” (Sound Waves). Former Connecticut State Troubadour, Lara brings a charm, authenticity, and love of performing that resonates with diverse audiences. She has extensive experience as a policy social worker, and has worked in the US, Latin America and Asia – focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice. Echoes of these themes resonate throughout her music. Lara has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and tours from Maine to Miami.
“Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul.” (Daily Journal, Tupelo MS).
