LISTEN UP! with Gina Alibrio
Thursday - May, 31 @ 5:00pm
Listen Up! Music, a non-profit program supporting adult musicians with intellectual uniqueness, is proud to celebrate the release of Portland musician Kathleen Shevenell’s “Travel EP.” Kathleen and her fellow musicians at Listen Up have written and recorded a batch of songs chronicling some of Kathleen’s travels over the past six years, with music taking a wide-scale view of North America. The music ranges from country rockers to urban ballads and campfire sing-alongs, with Kathleen’s lyrics detailing the wonder and excitement of seeing new places in each song.
Kathleen will be performing the album in full with a backing band of Listen Up musicians. Her fellow singer/songwriter (and drummer for the band) David Vail will be performing a short opening set, and local luminary Gina Alibrio (and Kathleen’s vocal instructor) will start the evening off with a set of her jazz-inflected compositions featuring her powerful vocals.
