Concert: NYC Songwriter Anna Dagmar - CD Release Tour

Pompanuck Farm is proud to present Anna Dagmar in concert on
Friday, July 31, 2009, at 7:00pm. The British born, NYC-based pianist/singer-songwriter celebrates the release of her third album, “Let the Waves Come in Threes.” Pompanuck Farm is located at 494 Chestnut Hill Road in Cambridge, NY. Tickets will be available at the door for $10.

Song writer Jennifer Kimball says, “From the opening moments of ‘Let the Waves Come in Threes,’ Anna’s piano spills out over the band in fantastic, hooky, cascading lines and I am swept in. It’s a beautiful ride.” The title track is an upbeat sea shanty, which tells the vivid tale of a girl whose treasured diary has been swept up in a wild storm. She looks out across the ocean for meaning and direction as a mysterious voice rises from the waves. The album features twelve piano-driven folk/pop songs, lyrical string arrangements, spotless production by Ben Wittman (Jonatha Brooke, Patty Larkin), breathtaking soundscapes by guitarist Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega), vocalist Theo Bleckmann (Laurie Anderson), and the wholesome, unpredictable and refreshing voice of Anna Dagmar.

Since 2001, Dagmar has become known from NY to
Stockholm for her virtuosity as a pianist, singer and songwriter. She has released three albums, published a printed songbook, and has toured in cities such as London, Berlin, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Boston. Dagmar has been selected to perform on special occasions for luminaries such as world-class photographer, Annie Leibovitz, former Pakistani Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, and Swedish Nobel Prize Winner, Torsten Weisel. Dagmar’s songs have been recognized in Collected Sounds Magazine Top Albums, The Unisong International Song Writing Contest, The Williamsburg Song Writing Contest, and the ASCAP Expo Listening Panel and have been included on CD compilations for HOPE and Children’s International. Recently, Dagmar’s song, "Amazed," was chosen by UK conductor Alex Douglas for a gospel arrangement and was performed by the LVC choir in Bristol.
