“We’re thrilled to have one of the premier interpreters of American standards appear in Westport,” said Harold Levine of Westport, NSFC’s chairman.  “This will be his first time on the Playhouse stage.  He’s looking forward to it and so are we.”

Through his live performances, recordings, film and TV appearances, as well as songwriting, Feinstein has become nationally recognized for his commitment to celebrating America’s popular song and preserving its legacy.

Most recently, he hosted “American Songbook,”  a three-part PBS special that traced the history of popular music in the country.  His Manhattan nightclub, Feinstein’s at Loews Regency, presents top talents of pop and jazz, and he appears there for a sold-out holiday engagement every year.
