Virtual Cabaret Concert
Join us as we welcome back fan favorite Keba to perform from Deering Estate for a Virtual Concert as part of the Summer Cabaret Series. Keba will perform a fusion of Pop, R&B and Soul in the historic Great Hall of the Stone House at Deering Estate, the same intimate setting where guests have enjoyed the concerts for over ten years.
The free virtual concert on Saturday, June 27th at 7 p.m. will be presented on Facebook Live. From the comfort of your home you can set up your table, like our regulars do, with snacks and a bottle of wine, then sit back and relax or get up and dance if you desire!
About the artist
Growing up on a small island of West Indian traditions, Keba’s earliest influences included Calypso and Soca music as well as her mother who was a piano enthusiast. Keba also grew up to the sound of Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five, The Supremes and music from 50s American movies. Discovering her own voice became a way for her to connect with the world around her and cultivate self-confidence.
Like many immigrant families, the pursuit of career opportunities in America signaled a new beginning and shift in identity. For Keba that meant completing a degree in Chemistry and pursuing a stable career path. But as her passion for songwriting and music grew, she decided to redirect her path and ignore the expectations of those who told her she was too inexperienced and impractical to have a full-time music career.
In 2013, she debuted Wildfire, her first studio album, which she composed in collaboration with producer Erik Nunez and released under their independent label, Labrat Music. Since then, she has earned international recognition for her original songs at several songwriting competitions. Her powerful vocals and electrifying stage presence deliver live shows that move audiences to their feet.
Keba made her international stage debut as an opening act for Jill Scott and Kool & the Gang at the 2015 Tobago Jazz Experience. In 2016, Keba embarked on a European tour of Portugal, France, England and Spain. In 2018, she released the original EP, FILMSTRIP to mark the eve of her transformation from a girl into a woman. As Keba evolves, so does her unfiltered honesty about the complexities and power of being a woman. As an independent artist determined to blaze her own trail, Keba’s songs inspire others to express themselves and make their own dreams come true.
