Solstice Concert - December 21

Christmas Solstice Concert by Cords & Strings and Kodama TrioClick picture for TICKETS

A musical celebration of Christmas on the shortest day of the year; featuring the deep carols, traditional melodies, neglected verses and prose performed by Cords & Strings with a second act of excerpts and extrapolations from A Charlie Brown Christmas performed by Kodama Trio.

Cords & Strings' award-winning actor/singer Lisa Keating and virtuoso guitarist Jesse Vernier dig deep into the sounds of the season in this elegant offering recently seen at After Hours at Vivo Contemporary on Canyon Road. Kodama Trio (Jeremy Bleich bass, Milton Villarrubia III drums, Robert Muller piano) comes to us with a fresh and invigorating interpretation of A Charlie Brown Christmas after winning TWO 2016 New Mexico Music Awards (Best Jazz song, Best Jazz CD).

This evening of world-class performances comes to Eldorado at Santa Fe's Performance Space. Tickets are $20. Come early and grab dinner at La Plancha across the way or Arable across the street. Stay late and raise a glass at SFBC Eldorado Taphouse.

Tickets available through Eventbrite here.

A Studio Is A Studio

A snap during set up for rehearsal in my husband's art studio.

Here's a little live video from our show with Justin Bransford on bass and me and Jesse Vernier from Cords and Strings. This was our first outing on this material. Here I am dipping my toe in the waters of singing in Portuguese. I'm looking forward to exploring more lyrics in this poetic, liquid language of love. Enjoy, Lisa

Brazilian Exports

Here's a little sample from a LIVE set of Brazilian tunes we played at The Performance Space last week. I am loving working on this repetoire, so tender, sweet and sad with beautiful melodies and gentle rhythms. The sounds coming from Jesse Vernier's guitar are an inspiration. We've got some Portuguese tunes in the pipeline, too. 

Subtle, rich and romantic this is my first guitar/vocal duo endeavor. I hope you like this material on us. Jesse and I are looking to Samba our way into Summer offering private house concerts, gallery events and dinner music programs from LA to Santa Fe.
