Love is Blind: Music Inspired by Amy Winehouse

June 18-20

NEW: Dinner + Show with Villagio at the Regatta package available

Presented by Emily Wade Adams & produced by Ruth Condon of Brave Horse Music. Cotuit Center for the Arts is transformed into a New York City jazz club for the East Coast premiere of “Love is Blind: Music Inspired by Amy Winehouse."

Amy Winehouse’s music fused old-school jazz, soul, and R&B styles with modern hip-hop and reggae influences.  Her lyrics contrast raw vulnerability with biting wit: she could be at once wistful and detached, coy and brash. Her voice - a sweet & sour blend of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and a foghorn - was the perfect vehicle to convey such musical and emotional contradictions.
