Karrin Allyson 

Friday, July 26, and Saturday, July 27, at the Blue Room.

Karrin Allyson continues to build on her national reputation, making each homecoming even more triumphant than its predecessor. On the strength of 2001's Grammy-nominated Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane, Allyson recently earned a starring turn on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. With a gift for languages that helps her music stand apart from that of contemporaries such as Jane Monheit, Tierney Sutton and Diana Krall, Allyson croons with blissful authority in French, Spanish and Portuguese. Luckily for the small but dedicated corps of local jazz supporters, Allyson remains dedicated to her Kansas City roots, returning home from larger locales periodically to share her experiences and sneak-preview new material, such as tunes from her impending August release In Blue.
