ARTISTS WITHOUT WALLS PRESENTS MARY McPARTLAN AND BERTHA HOPE at ZIRZAMIN
May 24, 2013 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 pm
A special and unique collaboration has begun between the Irish Folk singer Mary McPartlan (who is in New York on a Fulbright Scholarship) and Jazz pianist Bertha Hope, one of the great exponents of the jazz idiom. Mary and Bertha, who both embrace AWoW’s multicultural approach to the arts, met when they each performed at an AWoW Showcase earlier in the year. The two women quickly hit it off and embarked on a new collaborative effort, which combines Mary’s Irish folk style and Bertha’s jazz piano.
