Summer 2016 Jazz Series: Keri JohnsrudAugust 05, 2016
A highly appealing jazz singer with a quietly expressive voice and a deep understanding of the lyrics that she interprets, Keri Johnsrud has been an important part of the Chicago jazz scene for the past 15 years.While having a solid regional presence, she continues to perform across the country (including regular appearances in Atlanta and New York City) and has built a strong reputation and following among peers and fans, alike.
Now, with the recording of her second CD, "This Side of Morning", she is making a major step forward not only as a singer, but as a lyricist and songwriter. With her collaborator and GRAMMY nominated pianist Kevin Bales leading a strong rhythm section behind her, Keri sounds in top form performing their originals on this latest album.
This concert is part of New England Arts & Entertainment's Summer Jazz Series in the Poli Club. Subscriptions to all five shows, which include reserved seating, can be purchased here or by calling the Box Office at 203-346-2000.
