'2nd Mondays' presents Global Singer/Songwriter JAMES DURST with MADHUMITA CHAKRABARTTI plus Special Guests David & Jacob Bernz
201 South Division Street, Peekskill, NY 10655 USA
Quietly traversing the planet since 1965, global singer-songwriter & 2nd Mondays host JAMES DURST has performed for rapt audiences of all ages in 50 states and 45 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, in Russia, Azerbaijan, Japan, Korea and most recently, several times in India and Israel. James draws from a rich and ever-evolving repertoire of distinctive original and collected songs in more than two dozen languages that reflect a global perspective and underscore the interconnectedness we share with all of life. Engaging each disparate audience in a participatory journey distilled from his travels, James brings us closer to our world and each other. In October he returned to Vietnam for the first time since touring there in 1974 (pictured below)
More about James can be found at JamesDurst.com. "A talented entertainer of no little range and versatility. His sometimes funny, more often poignant songs of other lands were always fascinating.” --Winnipeg Free Press
James will be joined by his wife, Kolkata-born vocalist MADHUMITA CHAKRABARTTI (at right).
