Intersections: The Music of Ellis and Williamson

My friend Sarah Taylor Ellis and her songwriting partner Lane Williamson are going to have a concert of their music at 54 Below next Thursday night. If you want to see them before they're famous, now is your chance. For 20% off the cover charge (which is already pretty cheap at $10), use code EW54BLOG. Here's the official description of the concert:

At the intersection of classic musical theater and contemporary classical music, Sarah Taylor Ellis and Lane Williamson's vernacular art songs cut to the core. Their smart and contemplative music encompasses settings of prose, sonnets, and tumblr posts, and their new chamber musical The Yellow Wallpaper adapts Charlotte Perkins Gilman's early feminist short story into a haunting theatrical work. Join Ellis and Williamson for the 54 Below debut of a distinctive new songwriting team. 

Featuring Michael Parker Ayers, Christina Benedetto, Sally Eidman, Camden Gonzales, Karen Hayden, Rachel Lee, Travis Leland, Mary Kate Morrissey, Rachel Sussman, David Alan Thornton, Rebecca Tucker, and Max Vernon.
