Kelley Hunt in Concert
Roots R&B, Americana singer, songwriter, piano player, guitarist Kelley Hunt is a rarity and a challenge to the music industry's penchant for easy artist definitions—a woman who has muscled her way onto the scene on her own terms with an identity steeped in blues/roots/gospel traditions and a refreshing originality. She makes music with its righteous roots intact that also crosses boundaries and takes on social and political issues. Together with a commanding, passionate stage presence and superior skills as a vocalist, she has earned the respect of critics and fans across North America and Europe. Sheridan Opera House, 8 p.m.
