“Once you’ve heard her voice, you will never forget it. Bursting forth is a deep, vocal caress that channels the cries, pain and longing of love lost; the whispers of stories scandalous and vexing; and the unscripted silences that allow you to sit back and just… take it all in.”
This event takes place in the 12Bar. Reservation is required either by call or online booking.
