Tillery to perform on Saturday
These three high profile ladies, who happen to be Jazz singers and song writers called Tillery will perform this Saturday in Rangeley.
RANGELEY -- What happens when three high profile ladies who happen to be Jazz singers and song writers wonder where they should go for a quiet time to write and rehearse? They come to Rangeley, of course.
And while they are here developing new music for some of their upcoming performances (the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. in the spring being one of them) they were encouraged to do a performance at the Lakeside Theater at 4 p.m. this Saturday.
Morton and Furbish found them the perfect Rangeley getaway cabin and it was a done deal. Although these gals are artists recognized by their own names, as a group, their performance name is Tillery.
Rebecca Martin Grenadier, who is native to Maine, has been recognized in national music circles as a critically acclaimed and revered singer songwriter. She brings Gretchen Parlato, who, according to Herbie Hancock is a singer with a deep, almost magical connection to the music.
And Becca Stevens, a singer songwriter who marks a shift in the way jazz singers see themselves and the way we listen to jazz singers. Together or independently, they are a powerful statement of the Jazz Singer.
Tillery will share the stage with a group of local performers known as the Peps. These four fabulous women will bring vocal harmonies on stage singing music from a classic repertoire of fun songs and harmonies. Sue Borko, Erin Smith, Pam Ellis and Pam Morse make this foursome a real crowd pleaser. The Peps will bring a joyful start to an afternoon of New York style live Jazz music.
There will also be a silent auction in the lobby of the theater.
