Live from the B-Hive
KCH is happy to continue to share with you this livestreamed concert that took place back on APRIL 26, 2020
“I relish the opportunity to express my affection and highest regard for the Kerrytown Concert House. Early in my career, as a largely self-taught pianist playing well outside the classical realm – or even the well-worn path of academia in the jazz realm – KCH was a unique bridge to connecting me to discriminating audiences who embraced my offerings. Over the very many years I’ve performed there, it’s been a laboratory for me; a place where I could hone my craft under the absolute highest conditions. With comfort and freedom of expression comes the possibility of achieving the best within us. Many of my brightest moments as a musician have occurred at KCH, and I consider it a treasure in our community that deserves the best we can offer its future place in our lives.”
