He Plays the Violin:

Edmund Bagnell, first violinist and vocalist of the internationally acclaimed group Well-Strung, stars in He Plays The Violin! This show was developed at New Works Provincetown at The Art House this past fall and includes a brand new song written for Mr. Bagnell by Broadway composer Scott Frankel (Grey Gardens & War Paint). Through stories and song, the evening celebrates all things music, from classical to standards and from pop to Broadway, and of course with a good dose of fiddle thrown in. This piece shows a different side of Edmund Bagnell in a personal and uplifting journey through music.  He will be joined by pianist, Yasuhiko Fukuoka, an accomplished musician, composer, music director, and arranger who is an active performer in NYC and across the US.
