The Wildflower Music Festival presents A Carole King Tribute Show

Posted

WHITE MILLS, PA - The Wildflower Music Festival is thrilled to present the marvelous Suzanne O Davis recreating the sound of Carole King on Saturday, July 31, at 6 p.m. at the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary in White Mills, PA.

Ms. Davis recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970s Carole King concert experience following Carole’s legendary album, Tapestry. The audience will be transported back to the iconic image of this multiple Grammy winning album of 1971 plus many of the hits from the smash Broadway musical, “Beautiful.”

Festival Chairman and Artistic Director, Judi Mortensen, says “this will be an extraordinary concert performed by a phenomenal singer and pianist. If the songs “You’ve Got a Friend,”

“Will you Love Me Tomorrow,” and “Natural Woman” are ones that bring back terrific memories, this concert is a must.”

This tribute show features all the music from the Tapestry album, and many songs that Carole King and her husband, Gerry Goffin, wrote together in the 1960s for artists like The Drifters, The Beatles, Herman’s Hermits, Donnie Osmond, Aretha Franklin, The Shirelles, Bobby Vee, and over 1,000 other artists. They were one of the most successful song writing teams in pop music history, composing more than 400 nationally recorded songs.

Suzanne’s performance takes you on a journey back to those great recordings with stories about the music, the history of Carole King’s incredible career, and a fun, sing-a-long, audience interactive performance. She has been playing to sold out audiences in Canada and the US. This is a concert that will entertain the whole family.

The Sanctuary’s Executive Director, Barbara Gilpin, encourages visitors to “come early to picnic and visit the Dorflinger Glass Museum and Museum Shop at the 600-acre Sanctuary from 10 to 4 p.m. Saturday to view beautiful hand-blown cut-glass from the 1800s in the glass museum and current American-made hand-blown glass in the gift shop.”

Saturday night concerts begin at 6 p.m., the amphitheater opens at approximately 5 p.m. Please bring lawn chairs or blankets. Picnics and beverages of choice are allowed at the outdoor graded amphitheater situated among tall evergreens and gorgeous fields of green grass. Picnics are allowed on the Sanctuary grounds only on concert days.

In the event of inclement weather, call (570) 253-5500 after 12 p.m. to determine whether the concert has been moved to the air-conditioned Wallenpaupack Area High School in Hawley.
