American Snapshots: Two Hundred Years of American Song is a program of piano solos and jazz trios representing a core sample of American music. Returning artist Lincoln Mayorga and his wife Sheri will perform traditional ballads to music by Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Stephen Foster, Irving Berlin, Carmichael & Mercer, Annie Ross, Bix Beiderbecke, Phil Ochs, Tom Lehrer, Randy Newman, William Bolcom and each of the Mayorgas.
Through the songs and piano solos, the Mayorgas wend their way through mountaintop hollers and music from the parlor, to the ballads and be-bop of the city, and into the storm of American politics.
Jazz bassist Otto Gardner and drummer Ted MacKenzie join Sheri and Lincoln on this American romp through what the Mayorgas call “The People’s American Songbook.”
