Anna Dagmar and Bruce Williamson July 23, 7pm TO BE RESCHEDULED...

To be rescheduled!

July 23, 7pm
All roads will converge at Pompanuck Farm on July 23 as NYC-based folk/pop pianist and singer-songwriter collaborates with versatile woodwind artist and Bennington Faculty member Bruce Williamson in concert. The two became fast friends at the farm almost exactly one year ago following Dagmar's CD release concert, and within a few minutes, in one of those "small-world!" conversations, they began to scheme about a chance to share the stage. Dagmar is known for her lyrical depth, vividly intricate piano accompaniments, and honest vocal delivery. Her third full-length album, "Let the Waves Come in Threes," was produced by Bennington native, Ben Wittman. Ranging from an upbeat sea shanty to a hopeful soldier's lament, the album held Top 20 positions in the National Roots Music Report "Folk" Charts for 6 consecutive weeks, peaking at #6, and was selected for A-List Artist on High Plains Public Radio, and #1 Airplay on WVIA. Williamson has performed worldwide with artists as diverse as Art Lande, Fred Hersch, Gary Peacock, Bobby McFerron, American Ballet Theatre Orchestra, and NY City Opera Orchestra. Also a composer, he has been awarded two grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. Dagmar and Williamson's collaborative debut promises to be an evening of heartfelt creativity, beauty and imagination.
