WDCB Presents Libby York and Jeremy Kahn Jazz Duo at Mayslake Concert April 20
(March 29, 2017) — Delight in the sounds of jazz duo Libby York and Jeremy Kahn at a WDCB (90.9 FM) concert April 20 from 8 to 10 p.m. at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County’s Mayslake Peabody Estate, 1717 W. 31st St., Oak Brook.
Spend an evening with York as she performs songs from her latest release, “Memoir,” accompanied by pianist Kahn. The program costs $15 per person and is for ages 10 and up (under 18 with an adult). Purchase tickets online or by calling 630-206-9566. All proceeds go toward the restoration of historic Mayslake Hall.
York has garnered praise from the international jazz press for her swinging, subtle style and intimate way with a lyric. A Chicago native, York has performed worldwide including New York, France, Los Angeles, Key West and Chicago. She studied with renowned jazz singer Abby Lincoln and was the featured vocalist with Swing Street, an eight-piece band that performed in concerts across New York.
Kahn is one of Chicago’s busiest pianists, dividing his time between jazz venues, pit orchestras and recording and teaching studios. Currently a pianist in the Chicago Jazz Ensemble, Kahn has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, and Branford Marsalis, among others.
“Show your support for beautiful Mayslake and enjoy some spectacular jazz while you’re at it,” said Forest Preserve District of DuPage County President Joe Cantore. “Don’t miss it!”
