We may not be able to gather together in person, but we can share a tune, a glass of wine, a wave, and a smile! On Wednesday, November 18 from 5–6pm, please join Executive Director David Kuehn for a virtual Wine and Music, featuring Zoë Lewis as our musical guest.
You loved Zoë when she played Wine & Music in August, so we had to invite her back! Affectionately known as “a band in a body,” Zoë Lewis plays vintage jazz and world beat grooves on anything from the piano to the spoons! Originally from the UK, she has called Provincetown her home for the last 28 years. She’s traveled to over 70 countries picking up musical grooves and stories along the way, released ten albums of original material, toured with Judy Collins, the Indigo Girls, Richie Havens, Nanci Griffiths and has even opened for Pat Benetar on the ukulele!
Her “Small is Tremendous” CD was signed to Judy Collins’ Wildflower record label, another song was signed to Putumayo records and became #1 in the satellite radio kids charts for 18 weeks. She has won numerous songwriting awards and her songs have appeared on Broadway, in documentaries, movie soundtracks, and in commercials. She has 9 CDs of original material and has written 2 musicals; SNAIL ROAD and ACROSS THE POND, which were staged in Provincetown to packed houses. She also leads a theatrical 1920’s SPEAKEASY, which has become a big hit with the Cape Cod summer crowds performing prohibition era jazz.
Zoë has played at numerous music festivals, teaches musical workshops, performs on Olivia cruises, and takes her show to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico every winter. As much known these days for her storytelling as for her songs, her performances are upbeat and fun, almost circus-like yet poignant and oftentimes political. Zoë is an entertainer from a bygone age.
The Boston Globe says: “Equal parts musician and story teller, this British transplant is blessed with the uncanny ability to uncover the extraordinary beauty in the seemingly ordinary.”
From the New York Times: “A gorgeous writer—so evocative, tender and thoughtful. And a mesmerizing performer.”
And from the Nippertown Review, NY: “Lewis’ superb sense of humor that brilliantly shines through in any performance. Like her spiritual folk-music sisters, Christine Lavin and Cheryl Wheeler, she’s a natural-born comedian, both as a song lyricist and with her between-tune patter.”
