Today: The Deidre Rodman Invitational at Zora Art Space

November 28, 2010

Deidre Rodman

What is The Deidre Rodman Invitational? It’s an afternoon of songs hosted by Deidre with Joy Askew, Misty Boyce, Lee Feldman, Rob Jost , Matt Singer, Lee Ann Westover and others listed as performers, with a running time of two hours, so it must be one extremely interesting show.  As for Deidre herself, I’ve seen her as part of The Lascivious Biddies, but she has quite a bio:

Deidre Rodman Struck is an Idaho native, mother, singer/songwriter, and former circus musician. She has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Elvis Costello, Debbie Harry, Natalie Merchant, Garland Jeffreys, Mary McBride and The Jazz Passengers. In addition, Deidre has three jazz CDs out on the Sunnyside label, and recently released a new pop EP, Circle. She also sings and plays keyboard with children’s band/all-girl band The Itty Biddies/Lascivious Biddies in conjunction with Carnegie Hall’s CarnegieKids/Musical Connections program. Elvis Costello has hailed her as “a wonderful pianist and a delicate composer with a truly unique voice.

And Zora Art Space itself is a friendly, low key place in Park Slope.  So it seems well worth your while to check this out this afternoon.

Deidre Rodman Invitational with Joy Askew, Misty Boyce, Lee Feldman, Rob Jost , Matt Singer, Lee Ann Westover and others, Zora Art Space,  315 4th Avenue between 2nd and 3nd Streets in Brooklyn (F or G Trains to 4th Avenue or R Train to 9th Street or Union Street), 5-7pm, $TBD
