Lyric lent its support to the Tapestry: The Carole King Tribute Concert on October 11, 2019 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.
The concert–named after Carole King’s 25 million-selling 1971 album– is a showcase of King’s incredible string of pop hits from the ’60s onward including “You’ve Got A Friend,” “Take Good Care of My Baby”, “Natural Woman”, “So Far Away”, “I Feel The Earth Move”, and many others. These songs remain part of any aspiring musician’s repertoire and arguably as much part of the pop music canon as most Beatles tunes; in other words, you know these songs.
The Tribute Concert was a multimedia experience that thrilled and inspired nostalgia from the Newport audience.
As King herself is a singer/pianist, so is Tribute band leader Jeannie Austin. Lyric provided the Kawai baby grand piano for the performances.
