1,000 songs = a grand performance

With a repertoire of more than 1,000 songs to draw from, Rebecca Kilgore shouldn’t have to worry about any moments of awkward silence when she and her band take to the stage on Nehalem this Saturday, Dec. 1.

Renowned for her swinging melodic interpretation of music familiar and obscure from the Great American Songbook, Kilgore delights listeners with performances, both tender and hilarious, that always honor the song.

Originally from Massachusetts, Kilgore has lived in Oregon since 1980 but keeps busy touring the US and Europe, and performing on jazz cruises.

She has more than 50 recordings to her credit, her most recent being a collaboration with German pianist and arranger Bernd Lhotzky with whom she tours in Germany. Other recordings include collaborations with Nicki Parrott, Dan Barrett, Dave Frishberg, James Mason and more.

Saturday’s concert will start at 7:30 pm at the NCRD Performing Arts Center, 36155 9th Street, Nehalem

Tickets, $18, are available at tickettomato.com and at the door.
