August 3, 2016 –
Free concert with Rebecca Folsom at Vail Public Library on Wednesday, August 3 at 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. Rebecca’s voice pours from an inner source of honest emotion, flowing from lilting tenderness to fully liberated, unbridled release. Her poetic songs open your heart, setting free a vulnerability you didn’t realize was locked away and inviting you to embrace life with all of its joy, sorrow, passion, and love.
