Fred Magee and Jacqueline Schwab to Perform in Wellfleet

March 16th at the Wellfleet Library

Fred and Jacqueline are two long-time piano players whose repertoire spans timelines from the 19th century to the present, and genres from Vintage American, Celtic, International Folk, and Classical to Rock, Jazz, Blues and original compositions. Two different musicians with two distinct styles. Playing solo and together, their individual and unique interpretations of the piano will demonstrate the endless musical possibilities that can be coaxed out of a single instrument. In one hour. Free and open to all.

 

Jacqueline builds bridges to connect listeners to the different cultures and strands forming our American music. Her signature playing infuses the sound tracks of Ken Burns’ Grammy-winning Civil War, Baseball, Mark Twain, The War and others. She lives on Cape Cod and has performed in almost every state of the union. Her newest solo program, I Lift My Lamp—Vintage Songs and Dances of Immigrant America

 

Fred celebrates our country’s immigrants and their multicultural contributions to our heritage. He is a Wellfleet based singer/songwriter whose songs fit his own style of off-the-wall storytelling. From Moby Dick to Birdman, Fred likes to investigate the unexplored regions of songwriting, from the complexity of modern life to the intimacy of everyday experience. Ranging from country to blues, rock, jazz and classical. His performances have been called ‘a cross between Randy Newman and Martin Sexton – funny, sad and a little crazy’.
