Cabaret At Darlington Arts Center 

April 13, 2013 



What a great time we had at the Darlington Arts Center Saturday evening!  That is a charming venue, perfect for cabaret.  Thanks so very much to everyone who was able to attend. As I said from the stage Saturday evening, here's the playlist, along with comments about the songs.  FYI, I come back here and add to the comments all the time, so check back frequently for more! 
Sweet Spring - Hayes & Nashe 
That's right. I took a very old poem, which got stuck in my head one day as I was wishing for spring, and wrote a melody to go with it. 

Spring Is Here - Rodgers & Hart 
One of my favorite Rodgers & Hart songs.  Larry Hart's lyrics capture the ennui that one can feel when life isn't quite right. 
Great American Songbook 
Fascinatin' Rhythm - George & Ira Gershwin 
First time performance for me of this classic Gershwin tune. 

Rhode Island Is Famous For You - Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz 
This is one of those songs that I'll sing any chance I can get.  First sang it in my Songs of My Life show, back in 2007. 
What'll I Do? - Irving Berlin 
My husband loves this song.  So do I.

Mama Song – Jiu Jian Kenn 

Vocalise – Sergei Rachmaninoff, arr. Hayes 
La Vie en Rose – Edith Piaf, Maguerite Monnet and Louigay; English lyrics by Mack David 
It Don't Mean A Thing – Duke Ellington 

Goodnight, My Someone – Meredith Willson 
Yes, Willson with 2 lls. 

Coffee In A Cardboard Cup – Kander & Ebb 
Been to Canaan – Carole King 

Twisted – Annie Ross 
Still Crazy After All These Years – Paul Simon
