The outdoor concert series at the Lippitt House Museum returns on August 14 and 21
PROVIDENCE, RI — The outdoor concert series at the Lippitt House Museum returns on Sundays August 14 and 21 with two famous local musicians – Kim Trusty and Becky Bass. This year’s performers bring a fusion of jazz and blues, and a fresh spin on Caribbean soul to the historic East Side Mansion Estate.
August 14 presents Kim Trusty in concert: “the girl with the golden voice”. A multi-faceted singer and guitarist, Kim creates her own brand of jazz, soul and roots music, drawing on her personal experience, intimate sentiment and lyrical talent to engage and move her audience. Kim’s performances are described as having a “transcendent vibe”.
Becky Bass brings her steel drum the following Sunday August 21st. Originally from the US Virgin Islands, Becky is a two-time winner of the New England Urban Music Award which combines her steel drumming talent with a voice described as “beautiful and angelic”. Equally versed in gospel and Caribbean soul, Becky’s performances are engaging, uplifting and dynamic.
Museum director Carrie Taylor says: “The garden of Lippitt House Museum is the perfect setting for a late afternoon summer concert. We are pleased to welcome these talented artists for the first time to our long running Hunter Music series. There’s no better place to sit back and relax while supporting two wonderful local artists than this beautiful shaded setting.”
