Shara Worden at Lincoln Center in New York City...

My daughter-in-law is feverishly preparing for the biggest night of her singing, composing, performing career.  She will be featured January 27th in the Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series.  Following is information prepared for this event and a 10-day tour which follows.

My Brightest Diamond has a brief tour coming up.  Scroll to the bottom of this post to see a full list of the dates and venues.

The first show of the tour will be part of the American Songbook Series presented by Lincoln Center in The Allen Room at the Time Warner Building on Columbus Circle in New York City (phew!).  Shara has prepared more than 30 minutes of new music, which she will perform with the chamber ensemble yMusic.  There will also be a full set of My Brightest Diamond songs (guitar, drums, bass & yMusic).

There are still a few tickets available... don't miss your chance to see this unique performance!!

A preview of what can be expected at the American Songbook concert can be heard this coming week on NPR's Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson, a list of the stations on which this broadcast can be heard can be found here.

Upcoming releases (and one past release) featuring Shara:

  • "I'm On Fire" is a duet that Shara recorded with Chris James of the band Stateless for their new album, Matilda, due out on February 21, 2011 in Europe on Ninja Tune.
  • Colin Stetson’s forthcoming album, New History Warfare Vol.2: Judges, will be released February 22, 2011 on Constellation Records.  Shara is featured on 2 tracks: “Lord I Just Can’t Keep From Crying Sometimes” and “Fear of the Unknown and the Blazing Sun” (which also features Laurie Anderson)
