08 Sep Wine, Women, and Song Tour Inspires Women to Follow their Dreams
Actors and musicians are both performers, but there are not a lot of people who can succeed in both fields. A number of musicians have made the transition from singing to acting, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash. But there are fewer examples of established actors who have been artistically successful in recording careers, especially as songwriters.
Upcoming at The Avalon, there is a worthy example of an artist who has maintained both an acting career and a recording career; Rebecca Pidgeon, (David Mamet’s wife, stage actress – Speed the Plow, Hollywood actress – Red, State and Main, The Heist, The Spanish Prisoner) has come up with an intriguing and worthwhile CD as a singer-songwriter. It’s her 6th album, called Slingshot and it will be given away for free to the first hundred people who purchase tickets to her show, “Wine Women and Song” opening the Fall Concert Season at The Avalon Theatre in Easton MD on September 16th at 8pm.
Rebecca, whose music has been compared to Norah Jones or Eva Cassidy, will be hitting the road on a unique tour in partnership with the first-of-its-kind, all-women wine company Women Of The Vine. Deborah Brenner started Women of the Vine and wrote an inspiring book about other visionary winemaking women entitled Women of the Vine: Inside the World of Women Who Make, Taste, and Enjoy Wine.
“When I read Deborah Brenner’s book,” Pidgeon reflected, “I was impressed that many of the women she interviewed had come to winemaking later in life as a second career.” Likewise, when Brenner listened to Pidgeon’s new CD Slingshot, the author felt the songs’ lyrics came from a place of change in a woman’s life. This creative spark between the two women brought them together for their “Wine, Women, and Song” tour to encourage women around the country to follow their heart’s passion even during these difficult times of change.
Easton’s very own Laurie Forster (The Wine Coach) is also hosting a special after party featuring a wine and chocolate tasting for those who purchase VIP tickets..
VIP ticket holders will also mingle with Deborah, Rebecca, and Laurie in this intimate gathering. Purchase VIP Tickets at www.WineNWomen.com.
