“Song Travels with Michael Feinstein” will air Fridays at 11 a.m.
The renowned "Ambassador of the Great American Songbook" and five-time Grammy nominated performer hosts Song Travels, a series examining how popular standards and show tunes have evolved through the years.
From the production team that brought you Piano Jazz, the program expands on the genre of American Popular Song. Each week a new guest joins Feinstein for intimate explorations of the journeys of songs and the artists who perform them. The line-up spans the musical spectrum, from Liza Minnelli and Bette Midler, to violinist Joshua Bell and Pink Martini pianist Thomas Lauderdale, and U.K. current pop sensation Rumer, bringing the Great American Songbook to a whole new audience. Each guest shares their passion for the songs through solo performances and duets with Feinstein, illustrating the continuing development of the songs across time.
