Amy Speace with Charlee Bianchini
November 17, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$12
Old Sloop Coffeehouse will present a performance by Amy Speace Friday, November 17, at 7:30 PM at the handicap-accessible First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School St.
Amy Speace deserves to be much better known. Although she began her creative career in the theater, acting with The National Shakepeare Company and various other classical repertory theaters, she long ago left the stage behind to pursue music full time. She was discovered by legend Judy Collins and signed to Collins’ record label, and her eight CDs have received critical acclaim and widespread airplay. She has been praised by such diverse legends as Guy Clark, Nanci Griffith, Ian Hunter and Alejandro Escovedo. Her crystal clear voice has an emotional catch and a fluttering vibrato that seems grounded in another era yet somehow speaks to this one.
Charlee Bianchini has been a professional musician for over six years. Trained classically, she studied with renowned guitarist Anthony Weller, and has studied voice with Kristina Martin, Jacque Chambers and Sloan Wainwright. When she’s not performing, Charlee teaches independent lessons and workshops at The Music Asylum, a music school in Essex, MA.
