Come to a beautiful hilltop Hillsborough home for an epic house concert featuring Megan Keely (& band) and John Elliott. This is a ticketed event at $15/person; purchase your tickets at Eventbrite (click here to purchase tickets). Your RSVP here will not ensure your spot until your ticket is purchased.
Megan Keely’s sound is influenced by an amalgam of soul, jazz, and folk, and she puts on a show that is teeming with rich musical sensitivity and delicate emotion. Her style draws on an eclectic range of soul, jazz, and folk influences including Billie Holiday, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Caetano Veloso, Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill, and Tom Waits. Megan lives in San Francisco and plays regularly with her brother on upright bass, her father on guitar and trumpet. When joined by her family, their instruments melt together naturally, leaving plenty of space for the music to breathe. Frequently referred to as one of San Francisco’s most promising folk darlings on the rise, Megan gives a performance that is not to be missed. Her music was featured the 2011 KFOG Local Scene 8 Sampler CD. You can hear samples of her music here: Megan's Website
A person said: “If you have never heard a John Elliott song before, I’m sorry you’ve been deprived for this long.” Born and raised in Minnesota and now living in California, John Elliott has been releasing albums and performing in every type of venue you can imagine since 2006. His Honda Civic currently has 252,120 miles on it and is named Glen. His songs have been prominently heard on "Grey's Anatomy," "One Tree Hill," and "Californication" (a co-write with Gregory Alan Isakov and J Wagner). He has been featured in PASTE Magazine, on NPR and on Neil Young's "Living With War" website. His music has a cult-like international following and artists worldwide cover his songs. You can hear his music anywhere and everywhere if you're in the right place at the right time: on the radio, TV, and internet; in cars and around campfires. John remains an independent, unsigned and unaffiliated artist and he is proud of that fact. He continues to make a living and build a dedicated following the old fashioned way: one new believer at a time. You can hear samples of his music here: John on YouTube
