RICHARD SHINDELL RETURNS TO WELLFLEET
An expatriate New Yorker now living in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Richard Shindell is a meticulous craftsman of song whose six studio albums and one live recording have been revered by critics and fans alike. Innovative, original and occasionally spiritual, Shindell’s songs weave tales that interchangeably champion the downtrodden, exalt the disaffected or wax empathetic to those lost to society’s fringes.
From his first record, Sparrow’s Point (1992) to the newest album South of Delia (2007), Shindell has demonstrated a penchant for songwriting at once passionate and profound.
Shindell’s songwriting is truly eclectic, ranging from lighthearted ballads and adulterous love songs, to dirges and diatribes that skillfully skewer politics, prejudice, war, and religion. He has a unique ability to morph into the soul of the many and varied personalities he casts as narrators in certain songs — songs that are veritable novellas framed in haunting acoustic melodies.
Richard has spent many summer days in Wellfleet and played to a sold out audience in Wellfleet in 2010. We are excited to welcome him back!
Dar has been enjoying summers in Wellfleet with her family for years and her affection for both Wellfleet Preservation Hall and WOMR inspired her to offer a concert to benefit these two Outer Cape favorites.
