Kate & The Crocodiles
Kate and the Crocodiles return to the Portland'5 Winningstad Theatre on Saturday, June 22, 2019, at 8pm. Much like the return of a fabled comet, you do not want to miss this!
Since their last show at the Winningstad in November 2018, “The Fantastic Kate Morrison,” as Thomas Lauderdale calls her, featured as a guest vocalist alongside Ari Shapiro in Pink Martini performances with the Utah Symphony. Portland Chamber Orchestra and Walla Walla Symphony Conductor Yaacov Bergman describes Kate as a vocalist with, "A sense of musicality and intonation that is impeccable. I love the color of her voice."
Kate and her brilliant band, the Crocodiles, comprised of innovative keyboardist Craig Bidondo, sinuous trumpeter Gavin Bondy of Pink Martini, and cosmopolitan drummer Brent Follis, perform songs that combine musical influences as disparate as Bing Crosby and Leonard Cohen, Judy Garland and Allison Krauss, with the complex presentation of a well-blended cocktail. Kate’s original songwriting draws the listener in, much like that of Sarah Bareilles and Sarah McLachlan.
Kate and the Crocodile’s most recent single, “Dear Alice” sounds like, “what would happen if, ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ hired Jane Monheit to sing a Joni Mitchell lyric.‘ “ You can hear it at www.kateandthecrocodiles.com
Classically trained lyric soprano Kate Morrison moved to Portland in 2013. She sings with noteworthy warmth, grace, wit, and intimacy. Kate, Gavin Bondy and Craig Bidondo formed the Crocodiles in 2014 and developed the band’s signature sound and distinctive repertoire, and have welcomed Brent Follis into the band.
All seating is general admission for this concert.
