René Marie (USA): Experiment In Truth
03/29/2018 to 03/29/20187416 Baltimore Ave, College Park, MD 20740
Guided and tempered by powerful life lessons and rooted in jazz traditions laid down by Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and other leading ladies of past generations, GRAMMY-nominated René Marie borrows various elements of folk, R&B and even classical and country to create a captivating style uniquely her own. Several of her original pieces focus on social issues, like This Is Not A Protest Song, about homelessness, and Three Nooses Hanging, which delves into racial tension in Louisiana. Her body of work is a musical exploration of the bright and dark corners of the human experience, and an affirmation of the power of the human spirit. After Party: Join us after the 9 PM performance for an opportunity to meet the artists and mingle with your fellow guests, right here at MilkBoy ArtHouse! Price: General Public: Reserved: $30+; GenAdm: $25+; Student/Youth: $10.
