I am reading your Odetta post. i had the honor of sitting back stage with her during the McCabe’s concert at UCLA. I just wanted to let you know that Lincoln Meyerson is teh curator of the show ans the music director at McCabes. although I am sure he would enjoy being referred to as an actor!!!
Get in touch with me so I can make sure you are on our press liost!
I am impressed and thankful for keeping Laura’s memory alive. You provide wonderful insight into her life and the people she touched. Being a long time fan, I love all the interesting material you painstakenly gathered. My thanks for all your hard work.
Thanks for all that information on Laura. Went to high school when she was there. She was ahead of me. Her passion and transcendent music are – incredible. Never get tired of it. Every year discover it anew. Have not read the book, but will. Why are there no photographs of Laura with her love Maria, or any of Maria’s paintings? I am a painter.
I would sure love to have a copy of the photo of bare-shouldered Laura at the piano. Is that a Michele Kort copyright photo or the work of someone else? Loved the bio. of Laura by Ms. Kort and gave a copy to a beloved friend.
Thanks for putting this together! I have a question – you say that Laura was 3/4 Jewish, but everywhere else I look online it says she was half Jewish. Do you have information about her Dad that others are unaware of?
