Melanie

4545 N Lincoln Ave · The Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall · 773.728.6000


Melanie first shot to stardom with her unforgettable appearance at the Woodstock Festival in 1969. The performance prompted the now common phenomenon of signalling an artist for an encore by holding up some form of light (first it was a candle, which merged into lighters, then flashlights and now mobile phones). In her hit song, Lay Down (Candles in the Rain), Melanie shared her experience of when the audience lifted up their candles in the rain during her set at Woodstock.

Melanie's singles Brand New Key (Roller Skate Song), Lay Down (Candles in the Rain), Peace Will Come, Look What They've Done To My Song, Ma and Ruby Tuesday have all achieved chart success with Brand New Key reaching #1 and remaining in the charts for 18 weeks in 1971. In the USA, Melanie has had 13 Top 40 hits, including 3 #1 hits.

In this intimate evening of song, Melanie will be accompanied by her son Beau Jarred Schekeryk on guitar and other instruments.

This will truly be a night not to miss with wonderful music that spoke to a generation and beyond. Melanie will present all her hits and some new compositions all woven together with her witty stories of a career that is nothing short of extraordinary.
