BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – On Sunday, Sept. 22 at 3 p.m., the blues, pop, jazz-tinged contemporary folk of Lara Herscovitch embraces misfits and underdogs, connection and courage, love and loss, hardship and hope, resilience and transformation. She tours widely, with showcases including Falcon Ridge, Telluride, Wooden Apple, Folk Alliance International, and the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance. She officially served as Connecticut State Troubadour from 2009 to 2011.
This singer-songwriter-poet also happens to hold a bachelor’s degree in political science and a Master of Social Work in policy, and much of her art draws from decades of humanitarian work in the U.S., Latin America, Asia, and Africa focused on education, community development, environmental protection, and justice system reform. She draws from a deep well of compassionate spirit, thoughtful mind, and far-ranging experience. Hers is a life fully lived yet still unfolding.
