Sounds at the Summit: An Evening with Rebecca Folsom
Rebecca Folsom is returning to Volcano Art Center’s Ni‘aulani Campus for another intimate acoustic concert on Saturday, March 11, 2023, at 5:30pm. “An Evening with Rebecca Folsom” concert tickets are $30/$25 for VAC Members.
Her music has been described as the soulfulness of Etta James, the abandon of Janis Joplin, and a touch of folk songstress Joni Mitchell. An award-winning artist, she has performed on BBC radio and television, Nashville’s Bluebird, New York’s Bitterend and Red Rock’s Amphitheatre in Colorado. “She takes you from subtle ballads to knock-you-to-your-knees blues.” – KUNC Radio
Add to this is a voice with a near four-octave range! Corridor Magazine wrote, “While her range is impressive, it’s the expression in her voice that rivets your attention and stays with you long after the show ends. Folsom’s voice pours from an inner source of honest emotion, flowing from lilting tenderness to fully liberated, unbridled release.” Her music career has spanned over 20 years.
The Boulder, Colorado native writes inspiring tales of human heartbreak, redemption and freedom. She shares those songs with exquisite intimacy in a solo performance. Folsom said performing on stage is where she feels most comfortable. “There is no place on earth that I want to be more. I’m happiest there, time flies there. It’s timeless, effortless and it brings me so much joy. My hope is always that it will bring other people joy, upliftment and awakening,” she said.
She will also be offering the The Art of Vocal Freedom workshop Sunday, March 12, from 10am – 2pm. The workshop will merge art (either collage, drawing, or painting), singing, and writing prose. Attendees will be able to work/play with all three artistic mediums at the same time. Cost for the workshop is $60 plus a $10 supply fee.
Folsom said working with students made touring a much more rich affair. “The whole experience got deeper, because rather than just showing up in a town, we are immersed in the community,” she said.
