PHOEBE LEGERE AT ABILENE In Rochester! November 15

Musician-singer-songwriter PHOEBE LEGERE will be appearing 
@Abilene Bar & Lounge November 15 

Phoebe will be performing her original hits along with classic foot stomping favorites.
With Andrew Alling & Washboard Dave Paprocki 

Phoebe's latest album, HEART OF LOVE, reached #18 on the ROOTS Charts. Her rascal outlaw SQUEEZE ME accordion album will drop in January.

The Abilene show is a fundraiser for Phoebe's 501 (c) 3 Foundation for New American Art, a nonprofit that brings art and music to underserved children in low-income communities.

NPR called Phoebe Legere’s musicianship “Breathtaking.” You can get lost in the sheer beauty of Phoebe Legere’s singing. 

The New York Times compares her to Edith Piaf.

Legere’s powerhouse piano and squeezebox virtuosity embrace Harlem stride, modal improvisation and New Orleans jazz and blues.

Legere started playing music when she was three years old. “Acadian and Cajun music is in my blood. That’s where I learned everything."

When Phoebe straps on her accordion she delivers authentic Cajun Joy. “I love to bring people together. I love to see them dance and smile.”

This is a rare opportunity to experience Phoebe’s range in an intimate environment. Phoebe is known for jams that blend jazz, blues, Zydeco, and Native American medicine chants into a spicy gumbo.

All proceeds from the show go to Phoebe’s nonprofit Foundation for New American Art, a 501 c3 organization that brings Art and Music to the children of low-income communities.

“Phoebe Legere is one of the most, inspired and talented creative-supernovas on the planet.” Hits Magazine

“She can maintain a rollicking left hand that segues easily from stride to boogie-woogie while tickling the piano's upper register into sublime submission.” – New York Times
