Amy Stacey Curtis SYSTEM

Amy Stacey Curtis will perform at the Oasis of Music beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday Sept. 13, at Trinity Commons in Lewiston.

Curtis is an award-winning visual artist who sings ukulele covers as a way to heal from brain injury. After six years of recovery, during which she progressed from wheelchair to walker to cane, she was still struggling with speech and movement disorders. She intuited that if she learned a skill requiring her to do multiple things at the same time, she might build new neural pathways and continue to heal. Within a week of playing and singing, her speech and movement were near “normal.” Curtis practices every day to keep healing. She can often be heard at the Monday open mic series at Fast Breaks in Lewiston.

The Oasis of Music is a weekly music series of performances of roughly thirty minutes, running from September to May. Admission is free, with donations accepted. The musical genres vary greatly, in largely, but not exclusively, acoustic formats. The Church at Trinity Commons is located at 247 Bates St., Lewiston. For more information, call 207-344-3106.
