Description

A Long and Winding Road is an entertaining and introspective look at the songs that inspired Maureen McGovern** **before her Academy Award-winning hit song “The Morning After.” A nostalgic tribute to Maureen’s roots as a folk singer, this show-stopping concert celebrates her love affair with the early works of Jimmy Webb, Carole King, Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and other groundbreaking singer-songwriters from her youth. The repertoire includes an eclectic selection of iconoclastic singer-songwriter material including “The Circle Game,” “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?” “The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress,” “Imagine,” “Fire and Rain” and many others. The songs, as The New York Times has called them, have become “the second half of the Great American Songbook.” They’re classic, timeless and evoke all kinds of memories.
