Casa Karen Presents....

Hello dear friends and music lovers!

SXSW was musically busy for me and inspiring (in some cases) and excitingly if not frustratingly crowded a la "Time Square dropped itself in the middle of downtown Austin" crowded, and I must confess it feels good to be back to a bit of calm again in our fair city!

The next thing on the horizon that I'm thrilled about is the great honor of hosting a phenomenal jazz pianist and her trio at our Casa Karen Concert Series...

Looking ahead to April:

Casa Karen Concert Series Proudly Presents:
The Pamela York Trio
Pamela York piano, David Craig bass, and Sebastian Whittaker drums.
Sat. April 20th
call for reservations (512) 459-9900
Tickets are $25 /  c.c. accepted over phone Doors open 7:30 show at 8:00
Free Refreshments and easy parking!

Pamela York was the 2007 Great American Jazz Piano Competition winner
Her latest CD, Lay Down This World: Hymns and Spirituals, was the recent DownBeat magazine editor's pick of the month...
All 3 artists in this phenomenal Houston based group are world class musicians in their own right and it is truly an honor to be hosting the trio at Casa.
