Lee Murdock “Songs and Stories of Lighthouses and the Great Lakes”
Please note: Due to weather, the show has moved to Orchestra Hall.
On June 1 at 7:30 p.m., Lee Murdock will transform Orchestra Hall into a musical, story time stage.
Taking snapshots from history, his songs summon the listener to take a front-row seat, to look through the eyes and into the hearts of individuals who have shaped our heritage on and around the Great Lakes. His concerts invoke a sense of place, but it is a universal place, and a timeless repertoire that celebrates the North American people, their triumphs and tragedies, work songs and pastimes.
Noted as a fluent instrumentalist on six- and 12-string guitars, Murdock combines ragtime, Irish, blues and folk styles with this flair for storytelling in songs. His musical influences span 15 generations and combine original compositions with traditional music.
