Singer/songwriter ellen cherry to perform

Baltimore-based singer and songwriter ellen cherry will give a free performance from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 at the James V. Brown Library.

Based in Baltimore, Md., cherry is an Emmy-nominated performer.

Mixing equal parts of pathos and humor throughout her songs, cherry is mysterious and powerful on stage and her banter gives audiences a peek into a whimsical, curious mind.

In 2012, cherry released her newest and most intimate work yet, a piano-based album produced by Caleb Stine, titled “Please Don’t Sell the Piano.”

Throughout 2012, cherry was a Strathmore Artist-in-Residence and co-founded MOBTOWNmoon, a collaborative project for Baltimore musicians.

In 2010, she wrote, recorded and performed a song for an Emmy-nominated TV campaign and also composed the score for a shadow puppet piece titled “Alonzo’s Lullaby,” which has been awarded the prestigious UNIMA Citation of Excellence.

She tours nationally and internationally, charming audiences from house concerts to festivals.

The program will be held in the Moltz Rotunda Room just inside the Fourth Street entrance to the library. Registration is suggested, but not required.
