Singer-songwriter Lucy Kaplansky is in high demand among her fellow folk artists. Her outstanding voice and her gift for writing have lent themselves to many collaborations with her peers, including John Gorka, Dar Williams, Richard Shindell, Shawn Colvin, and more. John Gorka has called her “one of the great singers and one of the greatest harmony singers ever.” The praise and recognition she receives from other singer-songwriters is reason enough to acknowledge Kaplansky’s great talents, but she continues to wow critics as well. Able to combine beautiful language with robust stories, her songs are “about life itself, in all its awkward, emotional, and difficult glory. There’s poetry in there, but not at the cost of the stories themselves.”
Early on in her musical career, Kaplansky took a hiatus to earn a Ph.D. in psychology and begin practice as a clinical psychologist. Although she ultimately returned to her calling as a musician, Kaplansky and critics agree that the education broadened her ability to create compelling characters in her songs and connect them to the listener on a deep level. It’s clear that she has an innate gift for telling stories, and a gorgeous voice with which to bring her characters to life. Her performance at The Purple Crayon promises to be an intimate, beautiful experience.
