Bergin O'Malley returns to The Day's "Live Lunch Break"
The spring/summer season of The Day's "Live Lunch Break" concert series comes to a close today with a performance by Bergin O'Malley at noon in New London's Telegraph Records Shop.
It's O'Malley second "LLB" appearance, but a lot has happened since she first guested in 2014. A former Stonington resident, the gifted pianist/singer/songwriter spent the last few years in Berkeley, California. We're happy she's back permanently — and just in time to share music from her latest album, "Somebody." It's an amazing collection of songs, admittedly on the melancholy side and tinged with longing and loss — "Longer You Love Someone" and "Some of Us Fall" are amazing tunes that make you want to reach out and reassure someone close you love them — but "Somebody" also has plenty of celebratory moments.
It's worth noting that O'Malley also writes and performs children's music, so there might a few tunes for the kiddos, as well.
"Live Lunch Break" will reconvene later in the year, and we'll keep you posted.
Bergin O'Malley, "Live Lunch Break," noon today, Telegraph Records Shop, 19 Golden St., New London; free; theday.com/livelunch.
