St. Patrick's Day Concert & Dessert Intermission
Join us for a St. Patrick's Day Concert with dessert intermission. Musician and Peace Troubadour Cecilia St. King, local musician Aaron Burdett and other Special Guests offer an evening outstanding musical entertainment!
About Cecelia St. King: Cecilia St. King is an Inner Peace Troubadour who has dedicated her life to healing our planet through the power of music. Over her 25-year career, she has performed worldwide. After running from the falling towers of the World Trade Center and discovering cancer in her throat 6 months later, her focus turned to PEACE. She is now in her 16th year of touring the United States from coast to coast.
Her work has been endorsed by the United Nations, the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence and the National Peace Academy.
Translating spirituality into song, she blends American roots music, merging rock, blues, folk, spirituals and a hint of jazz.
Her music is positive and contemporary, non-denominational and offers a powerful antidote to turmoil in our current times. Audiences are encouraged to participate, singing a joyous note, they will laugh, and might cry, but most assuredly they are left feeling a sense of hope that no doubt, leaves them wanting more.
"When words are not enough, music goes deep into the soul and can transform a seemingly hopeless situation. Why can't we all just get along? We're from One family called humanity. Isn't that enough?" - Cecilia St. King
"The world needs to hear your music. Now more than ever. - Pete Seeger
