New York\’s Lucy Kaplansky Returns to The Met

The Met welcomes the return of Lucy Kaplansky on Saturday 14 May at 8pm.

Lucy started out singing in Chicago bars, then barely out of high school, she moved to New York City. There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers–Suzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and others.

With a beautiful flair for harmony, Lucy was everyone\’s favourite singing partner, but most often she found herself singing as a duo with Shawn Colvin. People envisioned big things for them; in fact, The New York Times said it was \”easy to predict stardom for her.\”

Lucy\’s last solo album, Over the Hills is her most personal recording to date, with a stunning range of material, from stories about family–those that have gone before and follow after, of lives lived and roads travelled. The album connects to universal themes of love, joy, loss and dreams for the future. Lucy\’s most recent project, Red Horse is a name that she has toured under with independent folk singer-songwriters Eliza Gilkyson and John Gorka. They released an album last year to great acclaim.

\”The Manhattan Minstrel sings tenderly, provocatively and always wisely about being loved and being loveless, the loss of loved ones and the sweet contagion of a small child\’s wonder.\” The Boston Globe
