WORCESTER – Actor and singer/songwriter Alicia Witt will be performing at the Red Room at Cafe 939 at Berklee College of Music in Boston on May 2 at 8 PM.
In 2018, Witt — born in Worcester — released the album 15,000 Days, described as “a sweeping, big-hearted record, its songs rooted in modern arrangements and timeless melodies.”
According to Berklee College, “The five songs that comprise 15,000 Days are rooted in the lessons learned during a life spent onstage, behind the piano, in front of the camera, in love, out of love, and en route from one destination to another. Combined, those songs tell the story of a journey—one that’s both personal and musical, ultimately leading to a more mature perspective and fully developed sound. With songs whose personal lyrics help shine a light on universal themes, 15,000 Days is Witt’s most poignant material to date.”
Tickets to Witt’s performance are $20 and can be purchased here.
