When: Sat., June 3, 7:30-11:45 p.m.
On Saturday, singer and multi-instrumentalist Kim Mackenzie, a true unsung gem of the local Americana/roots music scene, who has spent years as a sought after sideman, will release her debut solo album Grace. A talented mandolin and fiddle player, Mackenzie’s debut song set is comprised of four songs by close friends of hers, and seven covers “that you might not recognize.” Produced by the Grammy-winning Joe Reyes (Buttercup, Mitch Webb and the Swindles, and more), Grace is a promising introduction to what Mackenzie is capable of when helming her own project: dynamic Americana with a well-conveyed range of moods and impeccable instrumentation. Reyes and multi-instrumentalist Ray Symczyk will provide backing for Mackensie at this album release soiree, which also doubles as an art show for Dub Weathersby, the artist who designed Grace’s album art. The event is an all-ages potluck and BYOB affair.
