New York City vocalist and composer Theo Bleckmann has a thing for Kate Bush.

Theo Bleckmann, In Concert At (Le) Poisson Rouge

September 22, 2010From his work with Meredith Monk and Laurie Anderson to his solo recordings, Bleckmann has established himself as one of the important creators of new music in New York.

Versatility is the key when it comes to career longevity in New York's thriving musical scene. Vocalist and composer Theo Bleckmann has more than enough to go around. From his work with Meredith Monk and Laurie Anderson to his solo recordings, Bleckmann has established himself as one of the important creators of new music in New York.

In this Sept. 22 performance, Bleckmann presents his latest project, Hello Earth! The Music of Kate Bush. Not intended to be a mere re-creation of the British star's songbook, Hello Earth! is an opportunity for the multi-talented Bleckmann to experiment with the infinite interpretive possibilities available, and to put his own creative stamp on the songs, which include "Running Up That Hill," "Under the Ice" and "Love and Anger."
