An Afternoon of Burt Bacharach with Fiona Tyndall and Friends
November 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm
Preservation New Jersey presents Fiona Tyndall and friends in a Saturday afternoon of music by Burt Bacharach.
Fiona (www.fionatyndall.com) and her talented team of musicians have created this wonderful collection of the best of Burt Bacharach. The show spans the entire career of Bacharach with early numbers like Say a little Prayer right through to favorites like The Look of Love, and Raindrops keep falling on my head. Fiona is accompanied by a team of talented and creative musicians playing keyboards, guitar, percussion and trumpet, to not just create the familiar orchestral Bacharach sound, but adding novel arrangements and interpretation to give new life to Bacharach’s work. In addition, Fiona’s enchanting voice brings new warmth and intimacy of these popular numbers.
Fiona was born and raised in Ireland, studied music, and had her voice classically trained. Her original style of singing was Traditional Irish music and her first CD, Deirin De, is a collection of songs in the Irish language. It was well received on both sides of the Atlantic, not only for her pure voice but also her unique interpretation of traditional songs. Fiona expanded her musical style into jazz when she moved to Boston, collaborating with a group of jazz musicians to record her second CD, Moonglow, a collection of jazz standards. Fiona moved to the Princeton area in 2007 and while juggling the many roles of parenthood, including supporting her children in their love of music and theater, she found time to further expand her own musical interests. She cut her teeth with Rock n Roll, singing vocals with a local band (The Funkin’ Soulnuts) and went on to front her own Rock ‘n Roll/ Soul/Motown band (Uncle Albert). Fiona likes to hold onto her Celtic roots and performs the Songs of Robert Burns at ‘Burns events/Suppers’ each January in the TriState area. Fiona was recently in the studio in Dublin working on a new album which is expects to release in early 2020.
She more recently developed a love for Burt Bacharach, and has regularly performed her Bacharach set with her tight band of skilled local musicians to broad acclaim:
- Kathy Haynie-Piano/Keys
- David Ross-Drums
- Andrew Koenig – Bass guitar
- Jim Brockman – Trumpet
