Outpost in the Burbs presents singer-songwriter Lucy Kaplansky on Friday, November 16th at 8 p.m. at the First Congregational Church, 40 South Fullerton Avenue. This concert will be the official record release show for her new album “Everyday Street.” Opening this show is The End of America.
Lucy Kaplansky is a rare vocal talent, “a truly gifted performer…full of enchanting songs” (New York Times).
Blending country, folk and pop styles, she has the unique ability to make every song sound fresh, whether singing her own sweet originals, covering country classics by June Carter Cash and Gram Parsons or singing pop favorites by Lennon/McCartney and Nick Lowe. Lucy’s iconic voice has been featured in film and on television, including commercials like Chevrolet’s iconic “Heartbeat of America” jingle. A Billboard-charting singer and one of the top selling artists on Red House Records, she has topped the folk and Americana radio charts and has been featured on shows throughout the world from NPR’s Weekend and Morning Editions to BBC Radio to CBS Sunday Morning. One of the most in demand harmony singers, Lucy has sung on countless records, performing with Suzanne Vega, Bryan Ferry, Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin.
Currently on tour in support of her new album “Everyday Street,” Lucy continues to perform all over the world. When not performing, she lives in New York City, where she enjoys spending time with her husband and nine year-old daughter.
The End of America is a band of friends, singers, and travelers who met on the road and found a kindred spirit in one another. The Philadelphia-based trio has a sound that is cornerstoned by the alchemy of their voices, weaving three distinct leads into harmony over a foundation of folk, rock, and americana. Fans often draw comparison to the likes of CSNY, Fleet Foxes and Ryan Adams.
