HONEY WHISKEY TRIO
with Abby Posner
arrow
Friday, April 17, 2020
8:00 PM

pay



 
“Their sound is intoxicating… To simply classify this trio as folk, bluegrass, or jazz would be to do them a great disservice. What I hear is great music and what I see is great joy.” - Bluegrass Spin

Harmony Sweepstakes National Champions, The Honey Whiskey Trio (Courtney Politano, Ann Louise Thaiss & Christina Wilson) are storytellers in song. All three trained their voices at CSU Long Beach's Jazz Department, and soon after began their award-winning ride within the contemporary a cappella community. Since then, the “Honeys” have picked up instruments and expanded their musical possibilities to folk, bluegrass, the occasional Andrews Sisters style tune, and any melody that catches the ear. Their captivating live performances are brimming with vocal harmonies, body percussion, haunting tunes and bright melodies.

Workshop: Sing! Stomp! Shout! 5:00-5:45pm 
 
 
Honey Whiskey Trio is an integral part of our Meet the Music youth education program. Since 2015, the trio has performed annually at the Annex for a total of 800 4th graders. Their upbeat, participatory presentations not only bring to life the concepts of pitch and melody that the students have learned in their classrooms, they also bring the kids to their feet with body rhythms, sing-alongs, and pure musical joy.

Opener: ABBY POSNER is an incredibly dynamic folk-roots singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. From lead-blues guitar solos and banjo riffs to drums and mandolin, her versatility is endless. A graduate of CalArts, Posner has composed music for films, television, and radio, including Old Fashioned, The Fosters, This American Life, The Art of More, and Last Tango in Halifax. If that’s not enough, Posner appeared in two episodes of GLEE, performing on banjo and guitar, and scored three films, all while performing with her band Abby & The Myth.

This upcoming year marks our 11th annual Gathering for the Grand Gala Fundraiser, celebrating art, inspiration and education.

Our annual Gala is high-energy and lots of fun, bringing together members of the San Pedro community. This year GVF will honor Gary Bettis and Bettis Insurance, who has been a long-term supporter of GVF since the early days of its inception.

Guests are encouraged to dress in 1950s cocktail attire, pink ladies or greaser fashion; black tie is optional. Advanced payment and RSVP required.
