Purpl@HRM: Lucy Kaplansky @ Summer Amphitheater

Lucy Kaplansky.jpg

Relax and have an introspective moment as the eerie beauty of Lucy Kaplansky's voice surrounds you.  Accompanying herself on the guitar, Lucy Kaplansky guides you through lyrical journeys close to her heart. Acoustic melodies harmonize with her wide vocal range, and somber tunes are mixed with stronger beats at engaging intervals.

"She started out singing in Chicago bars.  Then, barely out of high school, Lucy Kaplansky took off for New York City.  There she found a fertile community of songwriters and performers - Suzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and others - where she fit right in. With a beautiful flair for harmony, Lucy was everyone’s favorite singing partner, but most often she found herself singing as a duo with Shawn Colvin.  People envisioned big things for them; in fact, The New York Times said it was 'easy to predict stardom for her.'  Lucy temporarily left the musical fast track to pursue a doctorate in Psychology and open her own private practice, although she continued to sing.  Lucy was often pulled back into the studio by her friends (who now had contracts with record labels), wanting her to sing on their albums.
