Free Concert at Weis Center Plaza

Aug 17, 2015 04:25PM ● Published by Kevin

Rising star and modern jazz artist Kellylee Evans will perform on Friday, September 4, at 6 p.m. outside on the Bucknell University Weis Center Plaza.

The family-friendly performance is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required.

The rain location is the Weis Center Lobby. A rain call will be made on Thursday, Sept. 3.

Patrons are encouraged to bring a lawn chair, blanket and picnic. Cool beverages will be provided.

The event is sponsored, in part, by David and Clayton Lightman and Family and the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation as part of its Jazz Touring Network with support from the National Endowment of the Arts.

The Canadian singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is a chameleon-like performer whose natural charm and improvisational jazz vocal style have shined on her adventurous journey through jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop over the past decade.

She has released two indie solo albums of original songs in Canada and has earned two Juno Award nominations. She won "Best Jazz Vocal Album" for Nina, her impassioned tribute to Nina Simone.

Kellylee has captivated adoring French and Canadian fan bases and performed around the world, opening for such stars as John Legend, Dianne Reeves, Derek Trucks, George Benson and Willy Nelson.

Kellylee's latest release on Motéma Music, I Remember When, is a dynamic, hip, and modern album that showcases this emerging artist and her irresistibly original sound. The album captures her electrifying convergence of musical styles with an arresting combination of jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop grooves that feels simultaneously fresh and retro.

For more information about this free performance contact Lisa Leighton, Weis Center marketing and outreach director, at 570-577-3727 or lisa.leighton@bucknell.edu

The next performance in the Weis Center's 2015-16 Season is a performance by Colombian world musicians Cimarrón on Wednesday, September 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Campus Theatre, 413 Market Street, in downtown Lewisburg. General Admission tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors 62+, $5 for youth 18 and under, $5 for Bucknell employees and retirees (limit 2), $5 for non-Bucknell students and free for Bucknell students (limit 2).
