ABOUT THE ARTIST & SHOW:
“Pure musical poetry” (The Courier), Lara Herscovitch’s music is an original blend of modern folk with blues, jazz & pop influences. With a voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor” (Northeast Performer), she is “A rising talent who is truly someone to watch for” (Acoustic Live in NYC). Her music is “expertly written prose, songwriting at its best; good for your ears AND your soul” (Sound Waves).
Former Connecticut State Troubadour, Lara brings a charm, authenticity, and love of performing that resonates with diverse audiences. She has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor and tours from Maine to Miami. She also has extensive experience as a policy social worker and has worked in the US, Latin America, and Asia – focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice. Echoes of these themes resonate throughout her music: “Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul.” (Daily Journal, Tupelo MS).
