Singer, songwriter, and poet Ruth Carlin brings back her well-received, passionate show "SongMoments" to The Duplex this autumn for two very special performances on Thursday, November 29 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, December 2 at 4:30 p.m.
"SongMoments" is a wildflower bouquet of songs by composers as varied as Julie Gold, John Bucchino, Murray Grand, David Friedman, Irving Berlin, Cy Coleman, and Johnny Mercer, to name just a few. Ruth will also be showcasing recent original compositions.
Ruth's passion to communicate through song drew back her to cabaret performing after a stint with the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop. Along the way she studied vocal technique with Marianne Challis. Her first solo show was in November of 2005 at Danny's Skylight Room, and a second show followed at The Laurie Beechman. Since then Ruth has performed regularly at The Duplex.
