World-class singer Barbara Lea begins a string of Friday night engagements in the cozy cabaret room at Judy's on March 7th. In an all new show billed as SOME THINGS OLD, SOME THINGS NEW, SOME THINGS BORROWED, the luminescent Ms. Lea will perform an eclectic mix of favorite songs with collaborator Wes McAfee at the piano and John Loehrke on bass.
"She's terrific... a fine singer, with good intonation and excellent diction. She takes liberties with time and phrasing, but never to the detriment of the words. Even by cabaret singer standards, Lea has an amazing talent for seeking out fine songs, most from the '30s through '50s, with exceptional lyrics." -- Todd Everett, L.A. Herald
