More Information


_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.
