FOLK | Lucy Kaplansky

comment

When I caught Lucy Kaplansky's concert at Café Veritas a few years ago, she had great chemistry with the crowd. Kaplansky mixed deeply personal originals with covers from artists like Townes Van Zandt, and ultimately owned the night with songs like Eliza Gilkyson's piano tune "Sanctuary." Kaplansky is a person of many talents and is highly respected in folk circles: she holds a doctorate in psychology, did backing vocals on Bryan Ferry's "Frantic" album, and has achieved her own musical success with the award-winning album "Ten Year Night," released in 1999. Buffalo troubadour Davey O. opens the show.

Lucy Kaplansky performs Saturday, October 14, at Café Veritas at First Unitarian Church, 220 South Winton Road. 7:30 p.m. $10-$18. cafeveritas.org; lucykaplansky.com.
