Davis’ performance will showcase King’s iconic album, ‘Tapestry’
Suzanne Davis brings the music of Carole King to Crookston on Friday, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the Crookston High School auditorium as part of the 67th entertainment series of concerts sponsored by the Crookston Civic Music League.
“Tapestry” – The Carole King Songbook, is North America’s premier musical tribute to Carole King. Davis recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970s Carole King concert experience following the music of her classic album, Tapestry. Audience members will be transported back to the iconic image of her record breaking, multi-million selling album of 1971. “It’s Too Late”, “I Feel the Earth Move” and “You’ve Got a Friend” as well as many other King favorites are included in the album.
Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of Carole’s piano and vocals, just as they were. Davis’ energetic and heartfelt performance, along with her backup band of sax and guitar, will take the listener on a journey into those great recordings.
Davis’ career journey has taken her across the globe from the Middle East to Texas to Cuba performing as a keyboardist, vocalist, and tribute artist. Having played on some of the finest stages to standing ovations in several countries around the world, Davis has toured in production tribute shows to ABBA, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, and many others. She has shared stages and opened for acts such as America, KC and the Sunshine Band, the Village People, and BJ Thomas.
Not only does Davis channel the characteristics of King at the piano, but her comfortable stage presentation really endears her to the audience. “I really like to have fun and talk with the audience about the history of the songs,” she says. “I think people want to feel that we’re all sharing these moments together...and we are.”
