Eighth Blackbird Series: Joyce and Slater In Concert – reviewed by Julia W. Rath

Super grateful for this review from recent show with Andy Slater and Eighth Blackbird! Full review here.

“Joyce and Slater made for a great team. The exceptional blend of their respective talents made this concert remarkably enjoyable. Both agreed that it is unwise to listen to those ableists who would see disability as being the end—rather than the beginning—of acquiring new perspectives on life and on creativity. Whether we are members of the able-bodied or disabled community or something in between, the lesson we can take away from this performance is the importance of persistence in developing our talents and not listening to those who would have us believe that we cannot accomplish a cherished goal. It is essential to have faith in our abilities and confront our disabilities if we plan to pursue our artistry.”
