“Ms. Metcalf is musically joined at the hip with her one man band, extraordinary pianist and arranger Ron Roy, and together they have a relaxed, easy style reminiscent of the big band era.” —NYC’s Stage Buddy
Shepley gets a kick out of the witty and wisdom-filled lyrics from the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s. She and her musical partner/pianist Ron Roy specialize in little-known tunes from this era, and they perform these gems and well-loved standards in venues throughout New England and in New York City. They were the first U.S. musicians to record an album of lyricist Fran Landesman’s collaborations with Simon Wallace.
Going Places, their new show playing in Boston, New York City, and on Cape Cod, explores travel is all its guises and includes songs about Paris, London, New Orleans, San Francisco, and other locales near and far. Read Stage Buddy’s review of Going Places.
