Among the crop of America’s emerging contemporary folksinger-songwriter-poets and performers, Lara Herscovitch is on top of her game, bringing what Sound Waves calls “expertly written prose, songwriting at its best” in her new album, MISFiT.
The album has 11 original songs plus a bold reinterpretation of the classic, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” Poetry meets storytelling in meditations on love, faith and family, courage and strength.
The former Connecticut state troubadour offers an original blend of modern folk with blues, jazz, and pop influences characterized as “pure musical poetry” by The Courier. Her voice was described as “clear and smooth like expensive liquor” by Northeast Performer.
The new Southington Community Cultural Arts (SoCCA) center will be hosting a special CD release concert for MISFiT on Dec. 9, starting at 7:30.
Tickets are $15 and refreshments are available. The newly renovated building is located on the corner of Berlin Avenue and Main Street.
