Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts will present “Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook” in a one-time-only performance scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25.
The concert will take place in the downtown Hammond theatre.
Columbia Theatre Director Roy Blackwood said the concert, featuring Suzanne O. Davis, is North America’s premiere musical tribute to King.
“Suzanne O. Davis gives an energetic and heartfelt performance along with the Tapestry band and takes the audience on a journey into those great recordings,” said Blackwood. “With songs like ‘It’s Too Late,’ ‘I Feel the Earth Move,’ ‘One Fine Day,’ and ‘Jazzman,’ Tapestry brings back a beautiful flood of music memories with every song.”
Blackwood said the Tapestry band pays impeccable attention to detail in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of King’s piano vocals just as they were.
“The show not only performs songs from the record-breaking, Grammy-winning album, ‘Tapestry,’ but also Carole King’s follow-up hits that continued throughout the 70s. Tapestry brings back a beautiful flood of music memories with every song an unforgettable hit for audiences to experience.”
