Lara Herscovitch and the Highway Philosophers

Lara Herscovitch is a modern American songwriter-poet-performer, creating masterful contemporary folk with blues, pop and jazz influences. Former State Troubadour of Connecticut, she writes, sings and leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart, delivering performances that inspire, inform, uplift and entertain. Sound Waves Magazine described her music as “expertly written prose… songwriting at its best… good for your ears AND your soul.” Delivered with a voice Performer Magazine called “clear and smooth like expensive liquor,” Acoustic Live in New York City added, “She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect… It might seem too good to be true, but true it is.”

Herscovitch is “a remarkable performer” (WSHU Public Radio), “sharp as a tack (and wickedly funny)… polished, confident, talented” (Scenic Root). She has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and tours from Maine to Miami. She has also worked in the US, Latin America and Asia, on behalf of disadvantaged communities — focusing on education, community development and juvenile and criminal justice reform. Echoes of these themes are in her music: “Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul” (Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal).
 
This special concert with her backing band, the Highway Philosophers, will feature Rick Brodsky on upright bass and Joe Flood on fiddle, mandolin and guitar.
