Simone & Tift @ Merkin Hall, 3/21/2013
The 2013 Ecstatic Music Festival came to a close last night (3/21) with a performance by Tift Merritt and Simone Dinnerstein at the Kaufman Center's Merkin Hall. The two played most of their just-released collaborative album, Night, which includes new songs by Brad Mehldau and Patty Griffin, Tift's own songs, selections by Bach and Schubert, and The Cohen Variations by Daniel Felsenfeld. With a stage set up to look like someone's living room, it was a relaxed, great way to end the fest.
