By Kelly Laughlin for The Island Connection
The second concert in Quentin E. Baxter’s series will feature award winning vocalist Kate McGarry and the 2019 Grammy-nominated McGarry/Ganz/Versace Trio. The concert, sponsored by the Town of Kiawah Island Arts & Cultural Events Council, is scheduled for 5 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Turtle Point Clubhouse. With six critically acclaimed CDs and two Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Vocal CD, McGarry has become recognized as a jazz artist who brings authenticity and vitality to every song – regardless of genre. Along with musical collaborators guitarist Keith Ganz and Gary Versace, McGarry will perform music from their 2019 Grammy nominated “The Subject Tonight Is Love.” The Trio reimagines beloved standards, sets music to the words of 14th century Sufi poet Hafiz and dives into McGarry’s catalog of heartfelt originals.
