Laura Zucker CD Release Party
Bortin Hall

Doors Open at 7:30 p.m. Show Starts at 8:00 p.m.

This will be a show in the old CD release tradition: Laura will play the songs from Say Yes from start to finish, as they appear on the CD. SAY YES, Laura Zucker’s fifth release, is a collection of songs exploring ways that we can find the positive in a world of negative, examining difficult feelings and turning challenge into redemption.

She’ll be joined by a band full of special guests including Bill Wentz, Bill Younger, Cynthia Davis, Chuck Rosene, Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan.

Singer-songwriter Laura Zucker wins audiences over with a hard-won perspective and a positive spin. The powerful imagery of her songs and stories ring so true you might think she’s read your diary – and you’ll find yourself humming her infectious melodies for days to come. Laura’s incisive yet sensitive lyrics are matched by her evocative melodies and arrangements that cut straight to the heart.

Claudia Russell is an outstanding singer and songwriter who has shared stages with Loudon Wainwright III, Tish Hinojosa, Kris Kristoffersen, Willie Nelson, Peter Rowan, and Rosalie Sorrels among many others. Claudia is an expressive and versatile singer, as at home on a soulful ballad as a Buddy Holly-style romp. Bruce Kaplan is known for deftly accompanying on mandolin and electric guitar, providing melodic counter point and atmosphere that aspires to elevate each song just a little higher.
