Beautiful Dreamer | Charles Keating
275 Fairfield Ave, Bridgeport, CT 06604 United States
A glorious evening of music, mirth, poetry and just plain fun, all performed by an extended family of artists.
You start with a heralded Shakespearian actor with a delightful sense for music and words. You add to that a wife with a career of her own, writing and recording children’s songs with an enchantingly melodious voice. You sprinkle in two powerfully musical sons and Dave Shuford, who have had their own rock band in New York, and play a series of instruments including the most wonderful classic guitar, and you have Beautiful Dreamer.
This joyous and eclectic evening will satisfy and enrich. Poems, songs, stories, and anecdotes have been woven into a tapestry that rejoices the human spirit. Stephen Foster, Yeats, and Shakespeare alongside the Beatles, Neil Young, and the Rolling Stones. Listening is like going through an old attic trunk, never knowing what you might find next.
If you have the good fortune of seeing this performance, the first thing you will do is find out where they will be next!
