Abigail Lumsden and Les Horan Make A Sweet Return to the Bitter End
Musical duo Abigail Lumsden and Les Horan will be kicking off the New Year with a special performance on Thursday, January 7 at 7:00 PM at the legendary Bitter End located at 147 Bleeker Street in New York City. Recently, Abigail and Les brought their latest double album “Imagine Your Heart’s Journey’s” to a full house at Symphony Space. “It’s just the two of us doing what we love most: imagining our ‘heart’s journey’s by making beautiful music,” said Abigail, “…we’ll never miss an opportunity to play incredible music and give audiences the feeling that they belong right there with us!”
Abigail Lumsden will sing, play piano and play violin/viola and Les Horan will piano and melodica. Who would think of playing “Angela’s Theme” from the sitcom, “Taxi”, on only piano and violin? Or turning the songs, “Downtown” and “On Broadway” into one grooving medley? They will also be bringing their unique improvisations of Chopin, The Beatles, Regina Spektor and Dave Brubeck as well as Abigail’s originals into the space.
“Imagine Your Heart’s Journeys” covers the gamut from the Great American Songbook, contemporary popular classics, unique renditions of classical repertoire and beautiful originals. “I’ve never seen an audience quite so taken which was very touching,” says George Rothman of the Riverside Symphony Orchestra regarding a performance by Abigail and Les, “… it was just terrific!”
The performance is only $10 at the door with no cover or minimum. All ages are welcome. #
