Nancy Bick Clark
If you're suffering from those post-holiday blues this week and you want to ease yourself back into the live music swing of things, why not check out the Leo Coffeehouse event this weekend.
The Queen City Balladeers-sponsored series (which takes place each Sunday at the Old St. George complex in Clifton) is one of the longest running local/regional showcases of its kind in the country, spotlighting top names and up-and-comers from the singer/songwriter, Folk and acoustic music realms. This week, Steve Brock and Jamon Zeiler will be joined by Nancy Bick Clark
(pictured), an accomplished, Newport-based Celtic harpist who has competed in and won awards from various harp competitions around the country. Clark's latest CD is Peace Lullaby
(the title track was inspired by Sept. 11), a solo harp effort that mixed Celtic, Folk and Native American pieces for a transcendent, soothing fusion. For more on the series in general, dial up w3.one.net/~weierman/leo.htm
At Old St. George on Sunday (7 p.m.).
