On Friday, May 14th, 2004 at 9PM, the Inter-Media
Art Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present
a concert with singer/songwriter MARC COHN.
Marc Cohn, singer-songwriter, pianist, acoustic
and electric guitarist, is often named among the most personal,
most introspective lyricists of his generation. He used his
husky voice and distinctive songs to great effect when his
debut album won the 1991 Grammy for Best New Artist. His biggest
hit from his debut album was “Walking in Memphis”,
a song inspired by a meeting with a 70-year-old black pianist
and singer, Muriel, who played elegant versions of spirituals
and R&B songs and with whom Cohn was soon in rapt conversation.
“Walking in Memphis” became a huge hit in the
US and UK, and the centerpiece of his debut album.
Folks like David Crosby and Graham Nash have
stepped up to the mic to lend their vocal support to this
soulful new talent. From Patty Griffin and Rosanne Cash to
Chris Botti and Martin Sexton, Cohn is certainly not short
on musical friends or fans. Marc’s soulful piano work
and intriguing songwriting have endearing him to many a listener.
Tickets for this performance are $37.50 ($28.50
for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this
