Come Together: When the 1960s Met the 1970s
After a sold out-run of You Don’t Own Me: The Fearless Females of the 1960s, Carole J. Bufford returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below with an all new show now exploring the change in the musical landscape from 1965-1975. With music made famous by Janis Joplin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash, Dusty Springfield, Bobbie Gentry, Linda Ronstadt, and more, Come Together explores the ever-changing music industry in one of the most exciting, controversial, and impactful ten years our country has ever seen.
A recipient of the Nightlife, Bistro, and BroadwayWorld Awards for Outstanding Vocalist, Carole has become one of the most sought after young performers on the American jazz and cabaret scene. Carole recently enjoyed a highly praised 10 month solo run at New York’s Birdland Jazz Club. Carole has been featured in Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook series at Jazz at Lincoln Center. www.carolejbufford.com
The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand.
