Presented by Fugitive Productions at Sanctuary, Maynard

October 2, 2021

Isabel Stover is a Boston-based Jazz vocalist and storyteller who puts on a “heartfelt, warm, and vibrant show packed to the gills with soul.” Stover has a fearless willingness to connect with her audience, by using all the places in her soft, yet penetratingly powerful voice, she does this thoughtfully and purposely as a way of delivering the experience, the message and emotions to her listeners.

Isabel Stover is a Boston-based Jazz vocalist and storyteller who puts on a “heartfelt, warm, and vibrant show packed to the gills with soul.” Stover has a fearless willingness to connect with her audience, by using all the places in her soft, yet penetratingly powerful voice, she does this thoughtfully and purposely as a way of delivering the experience, the message and emotions to her listeners. Stover channels the laid-back style of her West Coast contemporaries, in a manner akin to Diana Krall, Norah Jones and Jane Monheit. Her carefully crafted repertoire is a collaboration between Stover and her quartet of talented musicians, guitarist Steven Kirby, bassist Mark Poniatowski, pianist Mark Shilansky, and drummer Mike Connors.

Kemp Harris defies categorization. He is a singer and songwriter; a master weaver of American musical styles. He’s also an actor, activist, author, and storyteller, and an award-winning educator. Kemp has acted in numerous films and TV shows such as SMILF (Showtime), and is comfortable sharing the stage with artists including Taj Mahal, Koko Taylor, and Gil Scott-Heron, as well as performing shows with his smokin' band. He wrote and performed “If Loneliness Was Black” for the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and Complexions Dance Company. Kemp has also composed for WGBH Public Television/Boston. Kemp's powers of observation, his unique gift for shining a light on our modern world and what it means to be alive in these times, have only deepened over a lifetime devoted to the most basic and profound of pursuits — genuine human connection.

"Kemp Harris is a thief, a tease and a heartbreaker. He knows too much. And it’s all right there when he sings… beautifully there. He’ll take your breath away.” —NPR, “On Point”

A note about safety from Fugitive Productions:

We’re living in challenging times. And we are starved for social interaction and live entertainment. Artists need to create, and we want to support them. Excerpted from a note from the band Counting Crows: “Everyone in the arts has been out of work for almost two years and every new COVID exposure risks putting ALL of us out of work again.” As we begin to live our lives in public again, we need to balance that re-entry with personal health and safety.

We have put together a fabulous season of entertainment for you. We are committed to making it safe — for you, the performers, and staff. To that end, like many other indoor venues, until we feel it is safe to do otherwise, we will require proof of vaccination to attend our events. You can just take a picture of your vaccination card with your phone and share the image with us as you enter.

As we discover more about the transmissibility of the Delta virus among those of us who are fully vaccinated, for now, we encourage all patrons to wear masks whenever possible. (We will have masks available at the door.)

The more we do now to protect ourselves and others, the sooner we’ll be able to live life more freely. Thank you for your support and flexibility.
