Critically acclaimed indie songstress Clare Burson and noted historic
gastronomist Sarah Lohman have come together to present a unique
evening of music, food, memory and history. This intimate event at
the historic Henry Street Settlement House will feature Clare
performing SILVER AND ASH, a song cycle inspired by her grandmother's
escape from Germany in 1938 and Burson's own struggle with the legacy
of family secrets and loss. As Clare performs, audience members will
participate in a four course meal comprised of dishes prepared by Ms.
Lohman that, like SILVER AND ASH, progress from late 19th century
Eastern Europe through Weimar Germany and 1950’s Tennessee, and end in
present day Brooklyn. This one-night-only event will be an
interactive presentation of performance, dining and history that
should not be missed.
With melodic minimalism and the sonic textures of Brooklyn and the
American South, SILVER AND ASH the album, produced by Grammy nominated
Tucker Martine, will be released by Rounder Records in 2010. Guests
at this event will receive a limited edition 3-song preview sampler.
Wine pairings will be included, and seating is limited.
