Birdland Theater is proud to announce the return of singer/violinist Edmund Bagnell in “Home For The Holidays” on Thursday, December 7 at 8:30pm.
The countdown to the holidays is on, and through music and humor, singer/violinist Edmund Bagnell shares his heartfelt recipe for a perfectly imperfect holiday season. This new show will feature selections from his 2020 USA Today top-ranked holiday album, “Christmas at Home,” along with Edmund’s original tunes. He will be joined on stage with actress/singer Kate Simone, and musical director/pianist Mark Hartman.
"Be it music made with lightning-fast fingers on a fiddle, or a honeyed voice of dulcet notes both powerful or peaceful, it is a pleasure to watch this man at work." (BroadwayWorld). Edmund tours internationally as a solo performer in addition to performing 1st violin and vocals in the singing string quartet, Well Strung. He also performs as an actor, violinist and singer, and has been recognized for his “hauntingly sweet voice” (SF Gate) and “luscious vocals” (BritishTheatre.com). As an actor he was cast as Tobias Ragg during his senior year at NYU in the 1st National Tour of John Doyle’s staging of Sweeney Todd. Edmund’s shows feature a mix of vocals and violin and explore a variety of musical styles from pop to standards, to classical, and even disco. At a recent show in NYC, his “smile took over the entire stage when he began his show at Birdland, and when he finished, the entire audience was smiling just as wide.” (Times Square Chronicle)
