KEY WEST EVENTS

Concerts

Tom Chapin in concert

Not many artists can count six decades, 26 albums and three GRAMMYs in their bio, but Tom Chapin is not most artists. The New York Times called Chapin “one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music.”  Seeing the multi-talented music man on stage, it’s easy to understand why.

A Fundraiser Concert Honoring Hugh Ware’s 99th Birthday

Raise a glass on the roof to beloved bon vivant and Hugh’s View namesake, Hugh Ware, on the occasion of what would have been his 99th birthday. Enjoy golden era jazz standards and WWII-era classics performed by Bobby Nesbit and Carmen Rodriguez while watching the sun tip below the horizon.

First Wednesday Jazz on the Roof

Jazz on the Roof is a series of monthly concerts featuring the critically acclaimed vocalist Libby York and her jazz trio. Working on her forthcoming album, York is known for her subtle and swinging renditions of Great American Songbook classics, as well as bossa nova gems and a few obscure Songbook treasures.

Susan Werner in concert

Called “one of the most innovative songwriters working today,” (Chicago Tribune), Susan Werner crafts lyrics that are as sharp as thistles, and every bit as funny as they are on point. A giant on the acoustic scene, Werner is by turns wry and passionate on stage, and famous for her live shows. As she says, “If you can’t laugh about it, you might be in the wrong line of work.”

Mary Gauthier in concert

Mary Gauthier comes to The Studios as an Artist in Residence this season, with a new book and recent GRAMMY Award-nominated album in hand. Gauthier has made a career of sharing the redemptive power of music through her live shows, Master Classes and a TED Talk.

Dead Horses in concert

Dead Horses isn’t a band in the conventional sense. Rather, it’s a folk-inspired conversation between two close friends, guitarist/ singer Sarah Vos and bassist Daniel Wolff. The pair’s musicality, and ambitions have sent them on a winding journey.

Ellis Delaney in concert

Ellis Delaney may just be what we all need after the past year. Funny, thoughtful and uninhibited, Delaney is known as one of the most giving musicians out there. She gives her all in transformational performances, stating that her mission is to be “undefended and open.”

Afro Roots Fest: Jose Elias

One of Miami’s longest running music festivals, Afro Roots was recently acknowledged by the Miami New Times as one of “South Florida’s Ten Best Music Festivals“.

A founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, GRAMMY Award Winner and two-Time EMMY Nominee Dom Flemons has earned the moniker “The American Songster.” With a repertoire covering over 100 years of early American popular music, Flemons masterfully plays everything from banjo and harmonica to fife and rhythm bones.
