WW Presents: Myriam Gendron & Footings 

When: Fri., June 24, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: NA

All Is Well

Myriam Gendron was working as a copy editor and book dealer in Montréal when she stumbled on an anthology of Dorothy Parker poems titled Not So Deep As a Well. Inspired by Parker’s prose, Gendron began setting the poems to music. The result was an acclaimed 2014 album, also called Not So Deep As a Well. Gendron’s project is no mere recitation. With sparse accompaniment and her humble, unadorned voice, she gently leaves her own mark on Parker’s brilliant writings. As NPR Music observed, “Just when you think Parker’s words have worn away Gendron, the singer twists or repeats a phrase in a way that unexpectedly cuts deeper, or even skews absurd.” Gendron plays the Light Club Lamp Shop in Burlington on Friday, June 24, with New Hampshire’s Footings.
