Sasha Papernik and Justin Poindexter

Glass Carnival blurs the lines between backwoods and cabaret, with beautiful harmonies and soulful takes on everything from rustic folk to American songbook, retro pop, and classical. Sasha Papernik, Russian-American singer/songwriter/pianist, teams up with Justin Poindexter, roots musician and composer/guitarist of Silver City Bound (formerly The Amigos Band) and a cast of NYC\'s top folk and country musicians to form present a totally original and engaging concept. Dolly Parton, the Gershwins, the Everly Brothers, and Burt Bacharach are all fair game in Glass Carnival, presented with love and creative spark. Ms. Papernik presented her Russian-American interactive concert, “I Speak Music," with her New York based ensemble at Lincoln Center’s Meet the Artist, Lincoln Center Local, and Carnegie Hall’s popular Musical Explorers series in 2014. Her 2013 self-released bilingual pop album, Victory, has been hailed by reviewers as "an eye opener," (Wildys World) and "unparalleled in its aesthetics and musical elegance," (Indiemunity).
