Spencer Day, singer-songwriter-pianist, has been coming to Hudson for a few years now--since 2007 at least. He has performed at the Hudson Opera House a couple of times, at Stageworks, and at Basilica Hudson last fall for the Hudson Opera House gala (not to mention, of course, all the places he has performed in San Francisco and New York City or the Monterey Jazz Festival or the Tanglewood Jazz Festival or the Kennedy Center). This Friday night, April 26, Spencer Day will be back in Hudson, performing in a setting that seems perfect for him (not that the others weren't): Helsinki Hudson.
Friday's concert celebrates the release of his new CD, The Mystery of You. The songs in this collection chronicle an ill-fated romantic relationship--"from passionate beginning to painful demise to enlightened aftermath." They are the music that emerged from the experience of survival and self-exploration--the outcome of the effort to "take a situation that's personal and draw out those things that are universal."
The concert begins at 9 p.m. Call the box office at Club Helsinki (518) 828-4200 for tickets.
