Adler & Hearne – Jazz Folk Duo
August 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
A spirited blend of original Folk Jazz with deep Texas roots.
From Texas’ upper east side, award-winning singer-songwriters Lynn Adler and Lindy Hearne are looking to reach audiences from one coastline to the other. Their music has a little bit of everything for everyone – an original blend of hearty folk, somber jazz, bluer blues, and wholesome Texas roots.
With over twelve recordings and decades of touring between this duo, their repertoire is one that is playful, poignant and poetic – including sparky love ballads, historically based tributes, children’s music, quirky story songs, modern-day spirituals, and anthems of justice and peace.
Raised by musical families and nurtured by choirs through college, the two met in Nashville, and now pay it forward together in performances from listening-room venues, festivals and community events to churches, libraries and schools. Lynn co-wrote the theme song for the hit PBS children’s TV series “Wishbone.” Her diverse writing background brings added experience to the duo’s workshops and presentations. Lindy sang in the famed Texas Boys Choir as a child, and for several years he and his band were Roy Clark’s backup group performing with Roy from Las Vegas to Hee Haw to Carnegie Hall. How to describe Adler & Hearne’s music and vibe? Think ‘song circle’ between Johnny and June Cash, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astrud Gilberto, and Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell.
