and its at Art Beat’s brand new home on Telegraph.
We are pleased to welcome Kristin Forbes and Olivia Mancini as our very first Artists-in-Residence in June! They will be spending a week with us at the Art Beat Rock Camp (mark your calendars now for our performance June 22 at the new Art Beat space on Telegraph!), as well as performing at the Acoustic Salon on June 20th.
Olivia Mancini is a New York based folk/pop musician, who has been touring and performing in the US and Europe for the past 10 years, on her own and with her bands, Olivia & The Mates and Astra Via. She will be travelling along the coast with our very own Antonette G for the Singing The Chorus Tour in the last week of June.
Kristin Forbes, the second member from Olivia Mancini & The Mates, comes to us from the D.C. area. She also has her own reggae band The Scotch Bonnets, whose recently released album Live Ya Life features Angelo Moore (of Fishbone) on bass.
Art Beat Artists-in-Residence, Kristin Forbes and Olivia Mancini, will be playing alongside Tom Rhodes and Ryan Christopher Parks this third-thursday at the Acoustic Salon. Kristen and Olivia are part of the Art Beat Rock Camp staff this summer, too!
