A self-proclaimed non-commercial artist, MacDonald has released 10 solo
recordings in the US, 8 in Europe on the Swiss label Brambus, and 21 songs with
Smithsonian Folkways (through the Fast Folk Musical Magazine).
He was reportedly the first American singer to tour the newly-liberated Czech
Republic in 1991, and has made 35 tours in Europe since 1985, nearly all of
them with NYC bassist Mark Dann.
Opening is area favorite Lydia Fortune. It’s
hard to pin Lydia Fortune down to one musical category given her love for all
types of music. From singer/songwriter to guest jazz vocalist, her calling card
is an eclectic blend of jazz, blues, spirituals, country, pop and more. Her
interpretive vocals reflect a unique singing style that has been honed over 40
years of performance. The music's the thing. A sense of adventure and a willingness
to collaborate keeps her approach vibrant and alive.
