Meet Felice Ling

 

Felice LingIf she looks familiar, you might have seen her working on the streets of Harvard Square. Occasionally funny, often awkward, and always astonishing, she has performed in Memphis, Chicago, and Cambridge. Before she was a street performer, though, she was a magician performing in her family living room nearly every Thanksgiving for fifteen years. She’s not flashy, she’s not snazzy – she’s Just Felice.

Meet Jenee Halstead and Mark Lipman

Jenee Halstead and Mark Lipman

Mark Lipman and Jenee Halstead have been sharing the stage for years as singing partners on each other’s original music. The idea of collaborating on a project together had been floating around for a couple of years, and they’re bringing it to life in a set that will combine story-telling, song, and elements of expressive movment. Together they are exploring the worlds of activism, desire, queer identity, the wounded healer and what it means to be an artists and a human in a world that want to commodify and control the human experience.

Chances are, if you’ve ever seen Mark Lipman play, your emotions have been stirred from the moment he opens his mouth to sing. His music is a combination of soulful, evocative, soaring, gritty vocals set to songs that are at once highly personal and familiar. If you detect something expansive and mysterious in the music of Jenee Halstead, a freedom that owes no debt to place and time — or even genre — you understand where she’s coming from. And where she’s headed … deeper into the essence of song.
