‘Lady Zen’ is an internationally known award-winning lyric poet and jazz singer/storyteller. Currently living in San Miguel de Allende, she will present ‘Always Something There to Remind Me’ a tribute to the 80’s music that influenced and inspired her. Fridays in June at 8pm.
“This show pays tribute to what I was hearing on the radio as a kid, songs that inspired me as a writer and performer. MTV was surging, and the commercial scene was in my ears, along with records of artists who had not yet reached their peak, like Bonnie Raitt. I was listening to the already classic pop voices like Carole King and James Taylor, while dancing in my room to Sting, Don Henley, and Elton John. I always come back to jazz, blues, and gospel roots, and solid voices from my sister singers like Bessie Smith, Mahalia Jackson, Roberta Flack to Aretha Franklin. But the pop scene is also part of who I am, and my new show, Always Something There to Remind Me, features songs that influenced and inspired me.”
