Birdland is proud to announce that singer Maude Maggart, the singular cabaret artist, will debut a new show, “Here Come The Dreamers” on Monday, October 16 at 7pm.
“Here Come The Dreamers” is a musical journey on the subject of dreams, and how they weave their way through The American Songbook and beyond.
When Maude Maggart debuted her cabaret act in 2001, critic Les Traub raved that she was “destined to become a major cabaret star.”
Maude Maggart was born and raised in New York City and began her singing career in West Hollywood at Tom Rolla's Gardenia, the legendary cabaret and launching pad of her mentors, Andrea Marcovicci and Michael Feinstein. Since her cabaret debut in 2001, Maude has gained a loyal following and critical acclaim, performing in cabarets and theaters across the United States and Europe; notably in New York City at Cafe Carlyle, and her longtime yearly engagement at The Oak Room of The Algonquin Hotel in New York City.
Maude has been the featured performer in a multitude of orchestral performances, including: The Oregon Festival of American Music, led by legendary bandleader Dick Hyman; Michael Feinstein's concert series at Carnegie Hall "Standard Time”, and the national live radio broadcast of "A Prairie Home Companion" with Garrison Keillor at both Town Hall in New York City, and at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. She has also performed at the Lapham's Quarterly "Decades Ball" annual gala; at the Allen Room at Lincoln Center with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks, and had the honor to sing for Dr. Cornel West's celebration at Princeton University. On film, Maude can be seen in the Johnny Mercer documentary for TCM, "This Time the Dream's On Me,” directed by Clint Eastwood and produced by legendary jazz documentary director, the late Bruce Ricker. She was also one of the guest stars of the PBS television series “The American Songbook.”
Maude has received awards for excellence from Time Out New York, The Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs, and Backstage Magazine. She has been the subject of NPR's “Morning Edition,” and is a favorite of radio personality Jonathan Schwartz. Maude has recorded songs with such luminaries as Ray Jessel, John Lithgow, David Lucky, Molly Ryan, Brent Spiner, and is heavily featured on her sister Fiona Apple’s Grammy-award-winning album “Fetch The Bolt Cutters.” Maude has five solo albums to her credit; including her latest, “Here Come The Dreamers.” Check out maudemaggart.com for more info.
