Smart bets: Songs for the Heart

Last year, local singer-songwriter Jane Roman Pitt worked with producer (and Free Planet Radio musician) Chris Rosser on her fifth solo recording, Road to Dreamland: Unexpected Lullabies for All Ages, an album of sweet songs penned for her grandchildren and bedtimers everywhere. The album went on to win the Gold Award from the Parents’ Choice Foundation. In a heartbreaking twist of fate, Rosser’s own son, Jaron, was placed on the waiting list for a heart transplant. “Songs for the Heart,” an evening of music, will simultaneously celebrate the Rosser family and the release of Road to Dreamland, with proceeds benefiting Jaron. Pitt will join other local musicians, including Danny Ellis, Billy Jonas and Al Schlimm, at The Altamont Theatre on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m. $12/$15/$25 VIP. Photo by Juan Pont Lezica
