Old friends, Cady Huffman (Tony winner for The Producers) and Mary Ann McSweeney (award winning jazz bassist, Girl From the North Country) investigate music during the pandemic. Combining voice with bass, and whatever else strikes their fancy, the duo pirouettes from Peggy Lee to Jimi Hendrix, with a promise that nothing is off-limits.
Cady Huffman started playing the Euphonium in 3rd grade, eventually putting it aside in favor of high kicks and belting out show tunes. In recent years she has taught herself the ukulele, couching the high kicks and refining her vocals to include her softer side. Influenced by Ella, Peggy and Blossom Dearie, she infuses her music with her huge heart, humor and megawatt smile.
McSweeney has played with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Joanne Brackeen, Lee Konitz, Gil Goldstein and Bucky Pizzarelli. She has played for renowned conductors, Leonard Bernstein, Lalo Schifrin, and John Williams. As a freelance bassist she has played 45 different Broadway and Off- Broadway productions. She continues to compose and arrange music for her “Urban Fado” project and is looking forward to recording her Urban Fado Project II.
”The McSweeney/Huffman hour wasn’t a cabaret show, and it wasn’t a nightclub act…it was a jazz set, a jam session, a living room concert, and…coffee shop set. It was fun to be a part of something that felt so natural and relaxed.” – Stephen Mosher, Broadway World
