Their lyrics have the ability to make you laugh, break your heart, chill you to the bone, hurtle you through time and space, or just make you relish in the beauty of the pictures their words paint. These songs transcend the genres they were eventually slotted into whether Pop, Jazz, Country, Rock, Blues, or Broadway. Stripping these tunes down to their barest essence and building them anew, Carole J. Bufford’s unique takes and inimitable style will make you hear some of the world’s most beloved tunes with fresh ears. Featuring Peter Calo on guitar, expect to hear songs by Paul Simon, Randy Newman, Irving Berlin, Bobbie Gentry, Cole Porter, Johnny Cash, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Colin Meloy, Leon Russell, Sara Bareilles, Kander & Ebb, & more.
