An Evening with Kat Wright

Festival Details - "An Evening with Kat Wright"...

Start: Saturday, May 4, 2024 6:30PM
End: Saturday, May 4, 2024 9:30PM

After touring for the last decade with horns & keys blazing, this new era finds Kat Wright being born anew - more herself than ever - revealed simply in a startlingly honest & glimmering naked light. With restrictions imposed by the pandemic, Wright & her cohorts have recently come to enjoy writing & touring in a stripped-down formation, mostly trio or quartet, in contrast to the big band she fronted for the better part of the last decade where she was described “a young Bonnie Raitt meets Amy Winehouse.” Fans of Wright’s singing & style have been thrilled to discover this paired down line up, which puts the group's true talents front & center to shine instead of drenching them in horns and fanfare. You’ll still hear the Raitt & Winehouse influences, but now also likenesses with Brandi Carlisle & Norah Jones. The resulting music is more intentional, more distilled, more potent - a direct balm for the trying times we face today. It’s truly a scenario of “less is more” - allowing Wright’s voice to really finally take center stage, to shine and ache and yearn and howl - unburied, out in the open, beaming. Only 300 tickets will be sold, and all proceeds (thanks, Kat!) will benefit Buell Street Dismas House and East Allen Dismas House, affectionately known as simply Burlington Dismas House. Your ticket purchase will help support those who are working hard to make a successful transition back into our community after incarceration. Thank you for being a part of their success. In addition to two sets from Kat Wright, we will have a brief interlude of resident speakers and awards for exceptional volunteerism. To date, 2,039 prior offenders have been provided a therapeutic community and a safe and sober home for up to two years with Dismas of Vermont while they find work, set and meet goals, and repair relationships. 90% of Dismas residents did not get arrested for a new crime. The generous support of our community is what makes all of this possible. Pre-sale tickets are $50 each and day-of tickets are $65 so purchase your tickets today! Interested in being a Corporate Sponsor for the event? Packages start at $500. Email (molly@dismasofvt.org) for more information.
