PUTNEY — On Wednesday, July 24, at 7:30 p.m., mother/daughter duo Suzzy Roche and Lucy Wainwright Roche celebrate the release of their first duo recording, “Fairytale and Myth.”
Suzzy Roche is a founding member of The Roches, the beloved folk/pop sister trio from New York City, whose career spans more than 30 years.
Lucy is a critically acclaimed songwriter on the rise who has toured with such artists as Neko Case and the Indigo Girls. She will release her fourth solo recording, “There's a Last Time For Everything,” in the fall.
“Fairytale and Myth,” which was featured recently on NPR's “Mountain Stage,” features the late, great Rob Morsberger on piano. It was one of his last works before he succumbed to brain cancer on June 1.
“This project was truly a labor of love,” says Suzzy. “Rob had decided that, faced with his diagnosis, he wanted to make as much music as he could. We started working together, sitting in his studio with our winter coats bundled around us, not knowing what would come of it. The result is 'Fairytale and Myth.' Though we all knew he was facing the end of his life, the experience was joyful, even magical.”
Continuing this moving labor of love, Lucy's father, Loudon Wainwright III, joins in for When I'm at Your House.
