Enjoy Music in the Glen at Newport Hills September 14

mareMusically sophisticated Mare and Nomad will be performing at the Glen weaving in elements of jazz and bluegrass.

 

“Daddy was a seeker,” says Mare Wakefield. “Eventually he became a Salvationist minister. Mama was some kind of gypsy, loving nothing more than a long, clear stretch of open highway.” Mare was born with wanderlust embedded in her DNA, and lived in eight different places by the time she was 10 years old. “It was a roller-coaster way to grow up, but my brother and I learned to fit in fast,” she says. “We had our rural Wisconsin accents down in two weeks flat. And 18 months later we were drawling like native Texans.”

 

For Turkish-born, German-raised Nomad, the journey was equally varied. His musical education began at the exclusive Istanbul State Conservatory and continued when he was awarded a scholarship to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music. Nomad has a gift for musical arrangements and carries a full arsenal of classical, pop and jazz chops at his piano-playing fingertips. In addition to working with Mare, the versatile pianist and composer has designed sound for film and TV, and has had pieces performed by symphony orchestras and in Boston’s legendary Fenway Park.

They’ve shared the stage with Ani DiFranco, Greg Brown, Eliza Gilkyson, Patty Larkin, Peter Mulvey, Erin McKeown, David Olney, Matthew Perryman Jones and more. Check them out at www.marewakefield.com or reverbnation.com/marewakefield
