Philipstown.info is pleased to present Karen Savoca in concert on Sunday, November 20th.  This event is the second in our series of concerts bringing nationally touring musicians to Main Street in Cold Spring.

Karen Savoca is a fixture on the acoustic music scene.  Since 1988, she has been recording and performing her own, unique blend of folk/jazz music accompanied by the innovative guitar work of her partner, Pete Heitzman.  After more than 20 years of playing together, their live act is flawless, but still has a spontaneous and improvisational style that has drawn loyal fans to their shows. Playing conga and hand percussion, Karen infuses the music with her love of Soul, R&B, and World rhythms.  Together, Karen and Pete have been described as, “Electrifying, unique and always uplifting, these improvisational performers have the fearlessness of a high wire act working without a net." –Six String, Columbus, OH

Savoca puts her heart into a song the way a great actor throws herself into a role, charming audiences with a supple alto and a boundless range of expression. A gifted songwriter, she draws you into her world of humor and compassion, telling stories with grace and ease, as though you've been invited to her table for supper.

Karen Savoca’s seventh solo release, Promise, released this year, was recorded in her 19th century church/studio nestled deep in the hills of upstate NY and is being lauded as her strongest collection of songs to date, hitting #1 on Alberta’s CKUA chart and #25 on the Euro/Americana Chart.

Karen’s music has received widespread critical acclaim.  The Edmonton Journal says, “There’s soul in the delicious grooves and phrasing, and soul in the broader spiritual sense that floats out in her lyrical vision."   The Duluth News Tribune wrote, "Cleverly written and embracingly beautiful songs that have a beguiling way of changing and reconfiguring themselves like an aural kaleidoscope." -Duluth News Tribune.  Dirty Linen Magazine refers to their, "Sparkling arrangements... joyous abandon ."

Karen Savoca and Pete Heitzman are winners of seven SAMMY Awards. Notable appearances include The Today Show, A Prairie Home Companion, Mountain Stage, Big Top Chautauqua, The Vancouver, Edmonton & Winnipeg Folk Festivals. They are also independent record producers who have scored several feature films and documentaries.
