Wednesday, December 30, 2009 10:43 AM
Anyone celebrating New Year's Eve on Front Street will be treated to a surprise performance by Christina Frith Quinn who will perform songs from her upcoming album.
The Bermudian daughter of Muppets designer Michael K. Frith is currently working on a new CD featuring artists who have worked with international stars including Santana and Annie Lennox. These include percussionist, Rafael Pidilla, who has performed with Joni Mitchelle, Annie Lennox and Chris Isaak while guitarist J.B. Eckl wrote the song Primavera on Santana's 1999 Grammy Award-winning album, Supernatural.
Ms Quinn is recording her music, which she describes as world rock, with her friend Lorenzo Toppano who has produced some 38 albums, mainly in the Latin genre.
"The whole theme of the album is about bridging gaps between races, religions and cultures," explained Ms Quinn, who is due to perfom on Front Street at 9:20 pm on New Year's Eve. "
All of my music comes out of a desire to promote healing of the world and humanity."
Ms Quinn was born into a family rich in artistic creativity. Her father was the chief designer for Jim Henson's Muppets and her cousin is successful Bermudian singer, songwriter, Heather Nova. Ms Quinn was singled out at the age of seventeen amongst the students in her high school to sing at a peace concert with James Taylor and Chaka Khan.
Most recently, she has sung on a recording of the song, Be Still My Soul with singer/songwriters Beth Nielsen Chapman and Bonnie Raitt for a tsunami relief project. The new CD is due for release around April on worldwide release.
