Caffe Lena Presents: Kate McDonnell Album Release
February 19 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM CST
Kate McDonnell, singer-songwriter, plays her guitar upside down and backward and sings with her whole being. She has performed solo at the Newport Folk Festival, on the Mountain Stage radio show, on WXPN’s World Café, and at the Kennedy Center. Her award-winning songwriting has been singled out for praise by the Village Voice, Sing Out!, the Boston Globe and Dirty Linen. Kate has two CDs on Waterbug Records, and one each on Appleseed Recordings and Brambus Records in Switzerland. After taking a break from the music business to earn her master’s degree at Smith College in child therapy, Kate is releasing her 5th CD, Ballad of a Bad Girl, on February 19, 2021. Kate takes the stage again with a fresh batch of soulful, fierce, and engaging new songs. Kate has chosen to donate all proceeds to Caffe Lena for this show. Caffe veterans Michael Eck and Jim Gaudet will open the show with solo performances.
