Town Talk for Aug. 29
Tell us what’s going on around town.
Unity of the Mountains Spiritual Community presents award-winning singer-songwriters Jan Garrett and JD Martin, from Aspen, who will present their music and a spiritual message on Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at the Avon Public Library.
Martin has written five No. 1 country and pop hits for luminaries such as Reba McEntire and Peter Cetera. Garrett is a jazz singer, performance coach and (yes!) certified laughing instructor who has toured with Steve Martin and John Denver and has appeared on “The Tonight Show.”
Together, they have written and recorded seven CDs of original music and have just released their latest CD, “Inside the Songwriters’ Studio,” a collage of several musical styles and lyrical perspectives.
Their music is described as “rich and intelligent, a velvet-hammer wake-up call, as satisfying to the soul as it is to the ear … a deep and exhilarating trip into the heart of harmony.”
