Singer-songwriter Rachael Sage, whose ninth album "Delancey Street" stirs memories from her childhood, will perform a free in-store concert at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at Border’s bookstore in Town Square, 6521 Las Vegas Blvd. South.
Sage remembers shopping on Delancey Street and visiting the area’s Jewish delicatessans with her mother as a young girl. Some of her songs are linked to the Jewish heritage she learned to appreciate on her early trips to New York’s Lower East Side.
A self-taught pianist, Sage began performing her own compositions at age 4. She was a drama major at Stanford University, and often highlights her performances by speaking in Yiddish and creating characters.
After college, she moved to Manhattan, played downtown clubs and studied acting at the Public Theater’s Shakespeare Lab. Later, she opened for folk artist Ani DiFranco on her tour.
