Dory Previn has a uniquely incisive, surprising, and funny way of writing songs. She was a child performer during the last years of vaudeville, co-writer (with then-husband Andre Previn) of Oscar-nominated songs for Hollywood during the 1950s and '60s, and, beginning in 1970, she released several singer-songwriter albums that earned her a devoted following. Previn was a guest on Spinning On Air in 1998. Now her music is being championed by Julia Greenberg, a New York-based songwriter, performer and theater composer (Off-Broadway's "People Are Wrong!"). Greenberg brings an ensemble into the WNYC Studio to play some Dory Previn songs, and to talk about them with host David Garland. Greenberg will present a concert of Previn's songs at 92YTribeca this Friday, March 26.
