Kenny White

featuring Janie Barnett

Friday, March 15, 2019 7:30pm
Running time: approx. 90mins

Hailed by reviewers from the New York Times to the San Francisco Chronicle for his “thrilling” and “unique” piano playing, Kenny White is a talented singer/songwriter and a successful NYC-based record producer. He has written, performed, and produced music for hundreds of TV and radio commercials as well as film soundtracks, and has worked with stars like Keith Richards, Merle Haggard, and Linda Ronstadt.

Although he is an accomplished and sought-after pianist, White is known for his clever lyrics – compared to artists as diverse as Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen. His shows include original music, with songs ranging from humorous to heart-breaking, with White accompanying himself on piano and guitar. He often tours with Cheryl Wheeler and with Judy Collins, who released three of his CDs on her Wildflower Records label. For the past year and a half, he has been performing as opener for the Stephen Stills & Judy Collins reunion tour.

White is currently touring in support of his own recent album, LONG LIST OF PRIORS, which features guest musicians such as David Crosby, who says that “Kenny has earned a place among my favorite singer/songwriters. A true wordsmith and musician who reveals a fine sense of humor as well.”

Jazz Cocktail Hour

Mike Boone Quartet
with WCU's John Swana
& Jazz prodigy, Mekhi Boone

Thursday, March 21, 2019 6:30pm

Bassist Mike Boone's jazz story began when he was just eight years old. After attending the finest schools of music, touring with legendary performers like Buddy Rich and Ben Vereen, and recording with many more, he settled into the Philadelphia jazz scene. Here, he plays with luminaries such as saxophonist Tony Williams, pianist Trudy Pitts, WCU's John Swana as well as pride and joy, jazz prodigy and son, drummer Mekhi Boone. He teaches at Temple University and frequently tours with Ben Vereen and Jazz Organist, Joey DeFrancesco.

Mekhi "Kaboom" Boone, Mike Boone's youngest son, plays six instruments (piano, drums, trumpet, electric bass, upright bass and electric guitar), though his parents knew early on that his favorite would be drums. Gifted with perfect pitch, he has never had a lesson and plays by ear, mentored by Lil John Roberts, drummer to Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder. Now 12, he's been playing professionally since age 7 on Philly and NYC stages, a fixture at Chris' Jazz Cafe. When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Mekhi replies "I'm ALREADY what I want to be!"

When you listen to Over the Rhine, the supremely talented wife-husband duo of Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler, you quickly fall under the spell of Karin’s compelling voice, ethereal and earthy at once, and then you notice their subtle, satisfying arrangements, all the instruments so exquisitely balanced, and finally the lines of the songs start hitting you. Paste Magazine praises their “lovely, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting musical mosaic.” The Washington Post applauds their “understated, country-tinged charm.” The Wall Street Journal describes their album, Meet Me at the Edge of the World, as “subtle and elegant, with airy musical arrangements and breathtaking vocal harmonies that fit the title of the album.”
