Billie Holiday Celebration w/ Candice Hoyes

September 14 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Motor House will present international jazz recording artist, composer and activist Candice Hoyes’ Billie Holiday musical tribute and workshop on Sept. 14 and 15. Candice will present a concert at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, and a FREE workshop for family and children ages 6 to 12 from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 15.

Hoyes’ voice has been compared to Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson and Lena Horne. She uses themes such as the Jazz Age, feminism and black history as her music and teaching inspiration and is a lecturer at Jazz at a Lincoln Center. A Harvard grad, Hoyes has recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Philip Glass, and Wycliffe Gordon. She is a contributing culture writer for Shondaland, Los Angeles Review of Books, Columbia Journal of Gender and Law and Blavity. Her acclaimed first album, On Turquoise Cloud, featured rare Duke Ellington songs that blur the line of jazz and classical music. She is currently writing and recording her second album, which is set for a 2019 release. Hoyes will also present a workshop for families at Motor House to complement the cabaret performance.
