Mark your calendars, two very different powerhouse performers appear at Germano’s Trattoria in Baltimore this week:

Join Baltimore music-scene favorites Jennifer Blades and James Harp as they weave stories of life, love and laughter with songs from Kurt Weill’s Americana. From the ever-popular September Song and Speak Low to lesser known beauties such as O, Heart of Love and Is It Him or Is It Me, this intimate evening of song promises to bring a tear to your eye and put a smile on your face.
The Incomparable Charisma Wooten in “Eclectic Songs: I Love to Sing”
Jun 12, 2009 at 7:30 pm
Whether the music is classical, jazz, American show tunes, spirituals, gospel or folk music, this vocalist entertains you with drama and comedy. “…her voice has a warm earthy sound with a slight raspiness of a blues singer (some might classify as contralto); but she can reach the clear soprano spinto clarity… this voice invites you into the story, as if she is telling you a secret…” Hamil Harris, The Washington Post. “…Charisma’s performances are considered ‘edu-tainment’ … you will be compelled to think”. Philip E. Pannell, The Washington Informer.
Eclectic Songs: I Love to Sing! includes songs from Cole Porter, Thomas “Fats” Waller, Billy Holiday, Ira and George Gershwin, Ted Koehler and Harold Arlen, Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein to Hal David and Burt Bacharach; just to name a few.
