About Songwriters in the Round
Two songwriters plus host Dave Kearney will perform two sets of original material. Q and A between songwriters and the audience is welcome. The evening will explore the songwriter’s individual and unique process and celebrate songwriting as an art.
About Jim Barbaro
Jim’s songs are like vignettes or sketches, and each is a musical chapter that fuses rock, classical,western ,jazz and folk. Whatever the style, the underlying mood is always passionate,romantic and melodic.When you get your hands on a Jim Barbaro CD,you get a healthy pallette of spanish guitars, violin,cello,dobros trumpet, pedal steel as well as traditional rock and folk instruments.It all gets topped off and woven together by Jim’s dynamic, full throated vocals that range from deep and souful to rough ‘n’ gritty to satiny smooth. In a marketing driven industry where artists are discouraged from jumping from genre to genre, Barbaro is not afraid to take that leap and explore the many worlds music has to offer. And all you adventurous and multi-dimensional music lovers are free to come along for the ride.
About E. C. Lorick
E. C. Lorick is a New York based songwriter and performer whose songs embrace a broad spectrum of themes ranging from human-interest, to environmental, to political. His writings are essentially a compilation of his stories and the stories of others from past to present with an outlook towards what may lie ahead. All, done to equally intriguing musical arrangements.
Perhaps the reason that Dave Kearney’s songs are so powerful is that he has actually lived them. His heartfelt performances elicit nods of recognition, tears, and a line of people coming up to him after the show to tell him which song moved them the most. Sometimes it’s the one about a wounding father/daughter relationship, or the tragedy of addiction, or a shattering love triangle, or a sacred experience of the natural world. Sure he has had influences. But that is not enough. And obviously he has studied his craft well. But it is the crucible of his life experiences that makes Kearney a commanding artist.
Since moving from Baltimore to upstate New York, Kearney has shared stages with Mary Gauthier, John Hall, Jeffrey Gaines, Malcolm Holcombe, Tom Rush, Garnet Rogers, Tom Pacheco, and others. He has released two albums: “Ghost Tracks” (2011) and “The Waiting Game” (2014). He currently hosts a monthly Songwriters’ In The Round at Green Kill in Kingston, NY.
