“The alto saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin plays jazz that is sprinkled with the rich flavors of funk and soul—she’s a crafty traditionalist who remains in step with the rhythms of the young generation.”
–The New Yorker

Rissi Palmer
DEC 4 at 8pm
Pre-show Talk at 7pm
TIX ON SALE Nov 5

Rissi Palmer’s gift lies in reaching across all musical boundaries. While she made her mark in Country music, she is equally at home in R&B, bringing the entire spectrum of popular music to bear on music she calls “Southern Soul.” She’s played at the White House, Lincoln Center and the Grand Ole Opry, and now we’re bringing her to Stewart Theatre as part of her Social Justice
Residency.
