Add to Calendar 2017-05-20 8:00 pm 2017-05-20 Phoebe Legere at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts And Cultural Center We are thrilled to present the lovely Phoebe Legere, who has been compared to “Edith Piaf meet Little Richard.” Reservations are suggested. An art presentation of her works will precede the concert by Phoebe and her accompanist.


Phoebe has released 17 CDs of original and traditional music, and her latest album is HEART OF LOVE, and on the charts on Americana radio. She appears on HBO’s documentary IT’S ME HILARY. Her original song “Hip Hop Frog,” a song about the environment, was licensed by HBO. Legere’s paintings and drawings are in museums and major collections. Ms. Legere is, currently, creating a new all-French album. Legere opened for David Bowie on his national tour in 1991. She was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in music in 2000. Ms. Legere is, currently, creating a new all-French album in Montreal.
The New York Times raved: “Legere plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and meticulous phrasing.”
