RebeccaConcert with Rebecca Folsom -Wednesday, August 3, 5:30pm
Rebecca Folsom’s near four-octave range earns her a respectable seat in the same room as vocalists Whitney Houston and Queen’s Freddie Mercury. Add in the soulfulness of Etta James, the abandon of Janis Joplin, a touch of folk songstress Joni Mitchell and that is Rebecca. 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.
