Triple Strike @ Uncommon Ground
März 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Three superb artists are coming to the Uncommon Ground – Edgewater! They each bring their unique talents and gifts for an evening of great entertainment and new perspectives.
Paul is a singer, pianist and occasional songwriter. He’s told his original works contain “observational lyrics” but he doesn’t know how he feels about that. He prefers the saftey of his day job which is to play piano for ballet classes.
Elisabeth Pfeiffer is a solo ukulele player with a strong background in classical guitar. She studied at Lawrence University in the USA and HfM Würzburg, Germany, majoring in classical guitar. 2013 she took up a ukulele and never looked back. Since, she has written three method books on strumming and picking techniques and fretting concepts. On stage she mostly performs solo pieces, but throws in the occasional song, always looking to add something personal to a piece or a song. Her repertoire ranges from Renaissance music to Jazz and Rock covers, as well as contemporary classical music.
Come by and be surprised by what is possible on a ukulele!
Based out of the Chicago area, singer songwriter Liv Lombardi continues to build her dedicated fan-base with her soulful, androgynous and sultry vocals through her radically honest stylings. Her ever-growing body of work invites listeners to engage in an intimate, vulnerable and empowering story of life lived with an open heart.
Liv released her third studio album “Freedom Girl” in October 2017. A pop-heavy evolution with similar folk roots, Freedom Girl developed into a more direct and universal story than that of the internal representation of her previous two albums. The title track was originally inspired by a chance meeting with a perfect stranger in Budapest, Hungary, Lombardi explains about a 2013 trek across Europe with nothing but a backpack and a guitar.
”She called me Freedom Girl during our afternoon and evening together and it unlocked a world of wonder �in my brain and heart. The song was fully fleshed out� a few months later while I was living at the beach in Southern Turkey — thinking of this woman I had met and also meeting numerous young people who were escaping the violent protests in Istanbul. The idea of resistance and freedom was definitely in the air.”
In 2012, Liv released her debut album “Self-Medicate” which went on to win the New Mexico Music Award for Best Pop CD and gathered the attention of NPR’s John Schaefer (WNYC SoundCheck) as well as film and television composer, Michael Tremante (Lord of the Rings, Panic Room). Her music video for “Bearer of Bad News’ was a featured selection in the Williamsburg International Film Festival.
Liv has been favorably compared to the likes of Tracy Chapman, Chris Pureka, Melissa Etheridge, Ray LaMontagne and Patty Griffin. Liv has played at notable venues such as Pianos (NYC), The Bitter End (NYC), The Bowery Electric (NYC), The Saint (NJ) as well as appearing at SXSW. She has opened for national, independent touring artists such as Jonah Tolchin, The Sun Parade, God-Des & She, Samantha Crain and Pinegrove.
