Inspired by her Coney Island upbringing, Carol Lipnik evokes a shadow-world of mysterious, often misunderstood creatures through her stunningly versatile four-octave voice and expressive, impeccably crafted songs. Her repertoire—ranging from mad, carnival-ride tangos and waltzes to dramatic Bowie-esque rock and intricate, semi-acoustic art songs—is unified by the singer’s visionary commitment to the beauty of strangeness and the strangeness of beauty. Together with Mexican composer, pianist, and cabaret performer Tareke Ortiz, sideshow freaks meet Mayan deities for a Spooktacular Halloween concert of traditional and original songs that feature weeping bird spirits, spells, ghosts, werewolves, two-headed calves, and more other-worldly creatures.
