Carrie and I are presenting 11 of the songs we’ve written as the first chapter of our Subliminal History of New York State as a first reading of just-finished music by unrehearsed non-singers (you) on November 10 at the CAC in North Adams.

Please join us for a reception at 6 and a participatory singing at 7. Come sing the story and rise the beast! Singing experience not necessary. Watchers welcome. Tunebooks will be provided. Wear warm clothes.

After carrying out psychical and physical research for months, Carrie uncovered Roosevelt Island as a living breathing monster that after gaining its sight, desires to leave Manhattan’s East River. In its expression here, the Under Island story is told through original shape note song poems, written by Carrie and Jesse. Under Island is the first chapter of The Subliminal History of New York State, a singing school tour of New York State by Carrie and Jesse planned for the summer of 2006.
