Big hits from the 1940's like Moonlight Serenade, White Cliffs of Dover, My Shining Hour, and I'll Be Seeing You, share the spotlight with lesser known classics like Rocking Horse Ran Away, Shoo-Shoo Baby, and Something for the Boys. Kathy brings the music of wartime back to vital life in a story that celebrates resiliency and offers hope to all who are struggling to survive.
John Hoglund, writing in Backstage Magazine says, "Add Kathy Kaefer's name to the bearers of the torch of Great American songs... her rendition of standards like When I Grow Too Old to Dream...are delicate, subtle essays that convey a message of inner depth that are both persuasive and stunning."
Kathy Kaefer's Backstage award-winning show Kiss Me Once: Stories from the Homefront immortalizes the brave men and women of 'The Greatest Generation' in a celebration of the songs that inspired them to greatness. Kathy draws a deeply personal narrative from her own interviews with a veterans about his wartime experiences and her own grandmothers about their lives as young women on the homefront. Their stories come alive through Kathy's insightful storytelling and some of the greatest songs ever written.
