A blog about Hudson, New York

Très Sheik

Wow I’m impressed. The good folks at Helsinki Hudson have snagged one of my favorites: Duncan Shiek, an artful pop singer-songwriter (Phantom Moon and “Barely Breathing,”  an early hit  that I recently heard playing on the loudspeaker at ShopRite) who is also a Tony Award- winning composer of youthful yet luscious- sounding musicals (Spring Awakening and most recently The Nightingale, which work-shopped this summer at Vassar College’s Powerhouse Theater. Both were collaborations with lyricist Steven Sater, who will not be coming up, sorry to say –he’s in Los Angeles working on a new musical with Burt Bacharach.)  Sheik will be performing December 17 at 9, and the tickets are a mere $18. –Scott Baldinger
