Shana Tucker Performs at Diana Wortham Theatre this Weekend

January 17, 8 PM at the Diana Wortham Theatre, 2 S Pack Square, Asheville NC - Shana Tucker and her Band Perform.

When she's not performing as the cellist and mezzo-soprano for Cirque du Soleil's KÁ in Las Vegas, Shana is touring the country with her own music as an indie artist. Shana and her band bring their distinct jazz-folk-soul sound to Diana Wortham Theatre this Saturday with a special pre-performance discussion for ticket holders at 7:00 p.m. in The Forum.

A classically trained musician who studied at Howard University and the Brooklyn College Conservatory of Music, Shana will often stand and pluck her cello like a string bass. "I can’t deny the classical training; it inspires my cello sensibilities," she says. "But I like the thump of walking blues and old-timey bass lines. It’s like a delicious coffee blend, bold and robust, with subtle undertones of bittersweet."

This Saturday, Asheville audiences can expect an eclectic blend of Shana's own original music with original covers and jazz standards that veer from acoustic pop to funk, folk and R&B.
