An Evening with Kevin So
Museum of Chinese in America (215 Centre St., Manhattan)
Join MOCA for a conversation with singer/songwriter Kevin So and a sneak preview of his new musical, Great Wall, presently in major development with Tony Award-winning playwright David Henry Hwang.
Kevin So has earned the respect of Keb’ Mo’, Billy Bragg and playwright David Henry Hwang, and has built a loyal fan base around the world for the past 15 years. He has performed on the main stages at Falcon Ridge and Kerrville, and more recently at Carnegie Hall and The Ryman in Nashville. Kevin was also recipient of the 2007 NYC Fringe Festival Award (Best Music & Lyrics) for “Great Wall” – a semi-autobiographical musical. His songs have been recorded by Keb’ Mo’ (“Talk”), Shemekia Copeland (“Sounds Like The Devil”) and Big Wide Grin (“Individual”). He is blues, folk & soul in its finest blend.
