Clairdee- vocalist

Billie Holiday & Carmen McRae: A Beautiful Friendship

Saturday, March 9th, 7:30 pm

Richard E. Wildish Theater, 630 Main St. Springfield

Captivating vocalist Clairdee pays homage to two great innovators in the performance of American popular song: Carmen McRae and her friend and mentor, Billie Holiday. The enduring legacy of these quintessential jazz singers, their friendship from the time pianist McRae was just seventeen years old, and their individual musical gifts for storytelling provides a unique celebration of both singers.


Songs include: What A Little Moonlight Can Do, Don't Explain, Beautiful Friendship, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and more.
