The performance will be followed by a lavish reception at the home of Edmund’s parents, Gil and Mary Ann Bagnell on Spring Street in Catskill.

Through stories and song, the evening celebrates all things music from classical to standards and from pop to Broadway, and of course with a good dose of fiddle thrown in. This piece shows a different side of Edmund Bagnell in this personal and uplifting journey through music.
