Bert Lee Upcoming Musical Performances

This Summer To Caffe Vivaldi:

__Here's a look ahead at shows I'm putting together for the Spring and Summer months.
My series Three of a Kind Looking for a Full House has been steadily building a following. The most recent show featuring Lanusa, Stephen Stavola and Joe O'Rourke drew a really friendly house that stayed enthusiastically for all three performers. Next time out of the gate with this project, I'm looking at The Erik Frandsen Songbook, a retrospective of the work of that fine artist with lots of guest accompanists. That evening will probably also feature a full set of my own tunes and one other songster, as yet undetermined to round out the bill. lf you don't know Erik's work, you should, and if you do, you'll be happy with the way we're putting it together. The tentative date on that is late June or early July.

__July will also see Three of a Kind (etc.) bring together some fine up-and-coming talent, Dazzling pianist/songwriter Mike Tedesco has spoken for a spot and I believe we'll be able to get Anastasia Golescheva with her cello virtuosity to give us a winning performance. I'm scouting all of this and appreciate any suggestions from other performers on the Village scene.

__Late July or early August I have friends Larry Hanks and Deborah Robins coming into town, and I want to put together an evening of traditional music. Since Larry and Deborah lean hard on the cowboy component of their work, I'm going to put together an evening with that as a focus. Maybe get some Western Swing action in the line-up.

It's going to be a nice summer and I look forward to the performers I'm roping in and the audience that's proved interested in the idea of these shows.
