Audra Kubat, one of Detroit's finest singer-songwriters, will celebrate her 40th Birthday with a concert featuring a stellar line-up of musicians on Friday, June 7th at 8 pm at The Tangent Gallery/Hastings Street Ballroom. Kubat has been an essential voice in Detroit's folk/acoustic music scene since the '90s, and has released five albums to international acclaim.
The event is a kick-off fundraiser for the recording and release of her sixth studio album, due out this Fall. She will be showcasing new songs from her forthcoming record, along with highlights from her entire catalog. Joining her onstage are musicians Alison Lewis, Billy Brandt, Danny Kroha, Don "Doop" Duprie, Eddie Baranek, Julia Stephenson, Leah Elizabeth Dunston, Loretta Lucas, Pete Ballard, Robert Meltzer, Scottie Stone and Tino Gross. The show will open with solo sets by Detroit Music Award winner Emily Rose at 9 pm followed by Inside Outlaw Matt Dmits at 9:30 pm.
Audra’s upcoming Indiegogo campaign officially begins June 18 on the crowd-funding website Indiegogo.com. Reward items for the campaign will be available at this show, including handcrafted box sets of her complete recordings and a selection of Kubat's paintings for sale in The Tangent Gallery. An afterglow will follow the performance.
