Mary Fahl will be performing Winter Songs & Christmas Carols at the Kate
Former Lead Singer of October Project
Enjoy an evening of beautiful holiday classics and winter songs with Mary Fahl, former lead singer of October Project. Along with her extraordinary band led by producer and multi-instrumentalist, Mark Doyle, she’ll perform songs from her album “Winter Songs and Carols” as well as some beloved Christmas standards.
With “a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms” (Boston Globe), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based chamber-pop group October Project, a band known for their lush harmonies, sweeping melodies and Fahl’s unique and powerful vocals. After two records on Epic, the band disbanded, but Fahl had more freedom to pursue her own muse, whether that meant writing and recording songs for movies (including the theme for the Civil War epic “Gods and Generals”), singing arias and medieval Spanish songs for Sony Classical or releasing a unique album-length take on “Dark Side of the Moon.”
Mary will also share some songs from her new album, “Can’t Get It Out of My Head,” a collection of songs that she calls “essential” to her development as an artist … “With all the madness that was happening in the world, I was grappling with the loss of my mother and sister this past year and was feeling completely rootless. In an effort to find an anchor, a link to the past, a sense of home, I began to immerse myself in the comfort of music from my youth. These were such essential songs for me… like old friends… my musical home in many ways.
