SONGS FROM THE HEART (CANÇÔES DO CORAÇÂO)

When Molly and Haley met, they instantly recognized each other as musical soulmates. They discovered they both love jazz standards, Brazilian music, and are devoted fans of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro. 

Composer, arranger, and keyboardist Molly Flannery is known for her distinctive touch on the piano, her melodic improvisations, and her ability to groove in jazz, latin, and Brazilian idioms. After studying composition, improvisation and theory at Yale, Molly began her performing career in Japan where she appeared frequently at local clubs. When she eventually settled in Boston, she studied jazz with Ran Blake, Charlie Banacos, Kenny Werner, Harvey Diamond, and Doug Johnson. Her CD releases include ”Slow Dance at the Asylum” and “Riding the Bull.”

Singer/Composer Haley Peltz grew up in Lincoln and recently moved back from Brazil where she lived for several years. While immersing herself in Brazilian music, Haley also strove to bring the U.S. sound to her adopted country. Her last project abroad, a tribute show to the 100 years of Ella Fitzgerald, received critical and public acclaim in Brazil. In 2016, she was awarded first place in the Popular Singing Competition at the São Paulo School of Music. Haley continues to seek new cultural connections between American jazz and Brazilian music, highlighting women composers.

“Fugitive at the Door” is a bi-weekly music series presented by Fugitive Productions and Orange Door Kitchen. Since the winter of 2015, Fugitive has been bringing great dance bands to The Gallery at Villageworks. Now, Fugitive is partnering with Villageworks’ newest venue, Orange Door Kitchen, to present “listening” music — one to a few performers playing jazz, folk, bluegrass, blues, classical, world music, possibly even a cappella. Whatever strikes our fancy — and yours.

“Fugitive at the Door” happens two Wednesdays a month. Orange Door Kitchen serves a few small plates and snacks each evening with a full bar. We think you will fall in love with the room and the amenities and hope that our Wednesday evening events offer a regular mid-week break for you.

Orange Door is a no cash, no tipping venue — all transactions are digital and gratuities are included in the menu price.
