Since its recent opening, City Winery has boasted a diverse and incredible line-up of musical guests. Amy Ziff (of BETTY) takes the stage on Apr 23, with two very special guests: multi-platinum Swedish recording artist, Peter Jöback, and Canadian vocalist and composer, Issa (formerly known as Jane Siberry).

For one-night-only on Apr 13, you can catch the powerful singer songwriter, Mary McBride and her band at Joe’s Pub. McBride’s smoky voice is well suited to the intimate atmosphere of Joe’s. The singer was previously featured on the soundtrack for Brokeback Mountain, and will be performing songs off her latest album, Tricky, Tricky World.

Young Portuguese vocalist Sara Serpa has been making waves around the city with her ethereal sounds and incredible beauty. Best known for her wordless singing, she goes beyond scat styles to create a sound that is uniquely her own. Catch her at Jazz Standard on Apr 13 with her four-piece band.

The night before Pesakh (Apr 7) at Drom NYC is a very special performance by Metropolitan Klezmer—who will be celebrating their fifteenth year together!  The eight-piece band still includes the original quintet that came together to record a demo with the late Howie Leess in 1994.  They will play their usual array of rollicking dances and exuberant Yiddish swing, as well as a few new tunes from bandleader Eve Sicular’s “J. Edgar Klezmer: Songs from My Grandmother’s FBI files.”

Annie Darmon has been lauded across the world for her phenomenal five-octave range and incredible ability to emote through her music.  On Apr 12 she will bring her unamplified voice to the Cornelia Street Café for a moving evening of music, as she sings in no less than four languages and brings her history of exile to life through her impressive storytelling
