This post features two younger artists, one a CT native, performing this Friday.
Vocalist, composer, and West Hartford native Allegra Levy comes "home" (she now lives, works, and gigs in New York City) to play a CD Release Party at 8 p.m. in the performance space at The Hartford Flavor Company, 30 Arbor Street, in Hartford. The distillery is becoming well-known in the Capitol City Region for its line of Wild Moon Liqueurs with flavors such as birch, cranberry, rose, and others. An incredibly astute person reached out to Ms. Levy and invited her to perform based on the fact that her third album, issued this week on the SteepleChase Records label, is titled "Looking At The Moon ", a program of songs (all covers) that range from "Moonshadow" to "Polka Dots and Moonbeams." She's bringing the trio of musicians featured on the album - bassist Tim Horton (also a West Hartford native), pianist Carmen Staaf, and guitarist Alex Goodman - and they will play two sets. The distillery is also creating a signature drink in honor of Ms. Levy and the new album.
