Description

_Created and Composed by Kevin O’Donnell


_

Kevin O’Donnell’s enveloping, rich musical scores for The House have propelled the Sparrow to flight, Valentine to victory, and Houdini to battle Death. His original compositions now come front-and-center as The House weaves American folk stories and tall tales into a rich tapestry of all-original music. This theatrical concert is carefully focused on vocal and rhythmic dynamics, echoing the clarity and power of African and Native American folk music. Each song is a story into itself, some familiar, some forgotten, connecting to our musical roots to the churning of our early history.
