CT Horsewoman, Singer: Lynn Henderson at The Metropolitan Room
Lynn Henderson, a Connecticut based singer who began her career fronting college Big Bands, will bring her intimate and funny cabaret show to The Metropolitan Room on May 31st for one night only. TRY TO REMEMBER charts Lynn Henderson’s colorful life in song beginning as a single woman in New York City in the go-go 1960’s through marriage, motherhood, marathons, four thousand miles of equestrian competitions, and world travel. A true “journeyman musician, ” Lynn has carved out time among those other accomplishments for her musical passion and has chosen a rich repertoire to relate the tales. TRY TO REMEMBER features music from dearly loved composers and lyricists including Cy Coleman and Dorothy Fields, The Gershwins, Harburg and Lane, Maltby and Shire, as well as the one-of-a-kind Randy Newman, among others.
For the last five years, Lynn has packed houses at The Merryall Center for the Arts, Ruth Henderson’s Hunt Hill Farm, The Richter Association for the Arts and many charity benefits. Lynn has also presented five one-woman shows at Westport’s Levitt Pavilion. She has sung with such notable musicians as Skitch Henderson, Rob Fisher, John diMartino and Sherrie Maricle along the way. Musical Director/pianist/vocalist Douglas J. Cohen will lead a trio including Robert Sabin on Bass, and Sherrie Maricle on Drums. The entire evening has been directed by Mark Planner.
