Singer/songwriter Karen Savoca will perform at Philipstown.info’s space on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. This event is the second in a series of concerts by nationally recognized musicians. Savoca is a fixture on the acoustic music scene performing her own, unique blend of folk/jazz, accompanied by her partner, Pete Heitzman, on guitar. The duo has performed together for more than 20 years, but retains a spontaneous and improvisational style. Playing conga and hand percussion, Savoca infuses the music with a love of Soul, R&B, and World rhythms. [CLICK HERE FOR A VIDEO FROM A RECENT LIVE PERFORMANCE]
Together, Savoca and Heitzman have been described as, “Electrifying, unique and always uplifting, these improvisational performers have the fearlessness of a high wire act working without a net.” –Six String, Columbus, OH
Savoca puts her heart into a song the way a great actor throws herself into a role, charming audiences with a supple alto and a boundless range of expression. As a songwriter, she draws the audience into her world of humor and compassion, telling stories with grace and ease. Savoca’s seventh solo release, Promise, released this year, was recorded in her 19th century church/studio in the hills of upstate N.Y. and is being lauded as her strongest collection of songs to date, hitting #1 on Alberta’s CKUA chart and #25 on the Euro/Americana Chart.
Savoca and Heitzman have won seven SAMMY Awards and appeared on: The Today Show, A Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, Big Top Chautauqua, and the Vancouver, Edmonton & Winnipeg Folk Festivals. They are also independent record producers who have scored several feature films and documentaries.
