HOLLY NEAR with Emma’s Revolution
has worked for over 40 years as a singer, songwriter and teacher. With her powerful voice, wry sense of humor, and curious mind she interprets the songs of the folk tradition, Broadway, cabaret and pop with equal grace. Holly is joined by bass player Jan Martinelli and special guests Pat Humphries and Sandy O of Emma's Revolution, a duo that contributes guitar, banjo, ukulele and exquisitely complex vocal harmonies. Performing material from Near's recent recording, Peace Becomes You as well as old favorites from her earlier repertoire and a few standards from the American Songbook, Near presents an uplifting and entertaining evening of music.
