Songwriters at Play presents an intimate house concert in the Avila Beach area featuring Kiki Ebsen, a dynamic singer, songwriter, musician and artist whose vast musical range combines elements of jazz, pop, classical and rock. Show begins at 2pm on Sat. Feb. 24 (we'll send you the address and more details after you buy tickets). Tickets are $20 general admission.
Whether singing standards from the Great American songbook, classic rock covers or her own original compositions, Kiki has a style that is uniquely her own. For over 20 years, Ebsen was heralded as a talented vocalist and gifted keyboard player, supporting Grammy-winning and platinum-selling artists, including Al Jarreau, Tracy Chapman, Michael McDonald, and Boz Scaggs. The youngest daughter born into a famous Hollywood family (her father is Buddy Ebsen, best known as Jed Clampett on “The Beverly Hillbillies”), Kiki created a multimedia jazz/cabaret revue, "My Buddy, The Other Side of Oz." She also formed the "Joni Mitchell Project," a collection of top Los Angeles players that perform a wide variety of songs penned by the iconic Joni Mitchell.
Kiki has played numerous Songwriters at Play events, and other Central Coast venues. Last fall, she sang with her trio at the Paso Robles jazz club, Libretto, and also brought "My Buddy, The Other Side of Oz" to the Cambria Center for the Arts Theatre. This is the first Songwriters at Play house concert in the Avila Beach area, but we also produce events in Cambria, Cayucos, and Solvang. More info about Songwriters at Play: www.songwritersatplay.com
