Last Minute Folk is delighted to welcome our friends from Kansas City, Street Corner Choir, back to the LMF stage on Saturday, April 9th, 2016 at 7:30pm.
Think John Denver meets the Indigo Girls!!
Street Corner Choir is the songwriting duo of Lezlie Revelle and David Hakan. An evening of Street Corner Choir music includes their quiet love songs, story songs that pull you in, and their signature, up-tempo songs that rise to a crescendo for that sixties style big finish. Through them all are woven harmonies that lift each song out of the ordinary.
Lezlie Revelle comes from a family where music was the second language. Since she was old enough to walk and sing, she has performed in choirs, variety shows, theatre productions, coffee houses, fairs, and festivals. Revelle blends her songwriting talents with a roots rock/folk feel, a buoyant personality, and an occasional Celtic flair. As a songwriter, playwright, and poet Revelle shares stories of the human condition and the divinity to be found in all of us. all.www.myspace.com/lezlierevelle
David Hakan is a native of Kansas City who has been performing his original music for many years. He writes and sings Americana, folk rock, political music, and story songs about friends and family. In 1992 Hakan cofounded the Songwriters Circle of Kansas City, which remains the KC metropolitan area’s premier organization for showcasing and supporting singer/songwriters. Hakan has produced six CDs of original music, including Warning Bell: Songs for America, which was released in 2008. www.davidhakan.com
Equal parts message and magic, Street Corner Choir’s music is passionate and evocative. The songs are funny and tender, powerful and poignant, an offering of love songs, ghost stories, and folk rock interlaced with harmonies that will fill you up and leave you wanting more.
A fan said, “Street Corner Choir’s music is the song you can’t stop humming – whichever song grabbed you the night before.”
