LIVE @ Uptown Circle with Denise La Grassa
They say it’s never too late to follow your dreams. But can a middle-aged woman take her soulful, bluesy sound all the way back to Europe? Can she reignite her creativity following the demise of the considerable demands of running a college music department? Over thirty years into her career, can she set aside practicality for the sake of passion?
Those are the questions Denise La Grassa is exploring in her upcoming documentary film, North of 40.
The ’North of 40’ journey will also include a new album titled “The Flame,” inspired by her Scottish born mother’s own ambitious journey of immigrating to America at age 20, then reaching back to help bring many other family members with her. New songs include “Dawn of a New Day,” Vision of Good Rule Makers,” “Lady Liberty,” “Summertime Skies,” “Amen to Happiness,” and “Judge a Little Less.” For more information about this event, please check out https://www.normalil.gov/1350/Cultural-Arts
