MIRANDA RUSSELL

Miranda Russell and her extraordinary band have delighted packed audiences at the Shalin Liu Performance Center for the past three years. A powerful and moving vocalist, Miranda’s performance centers on nuanced treatments of a wide range of favorites from Joni Mitchell to Cole Porter. She “will knock your socks off – should you be wearing any this close to the beach.” (Boston Phoenix). Her dynamic interpretation and delivery of popular songs by such luminaries as Paul Simon, Gillian Welch, and Richard Thompson have become crowd-favorites in her pop repertoire. Critics have routinely praised her gift for the American Songbook as well as her gorgeous rendition of “La Vie en Rose.” Wrote the Senior Editor of the Ipswich Chronicle about last year’s show: “Rockport’s Shalin Liu played a red gold setting to Miranda Russell’s multi-faceted diamond.” Performing several tracks from her live double CD recorded at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, she is a sure-bet performer with a stunning voice. With: David Sparr, Vincent Briguglio, Leo Ciaramirato, Justin Piper, Joe Kessler, and special guests.
