Hochstein at High Falls: Debbie Kendrick Project

Thu, 06/16/2022 - 12:10pm - 1:00pm

Debbie Kendrick

Vocalist Debbie Kendrick is Rochester’s Queen of the Blues, carrying on a tradition of many great blues and gospel artists that goes back to the legendary Son House. 

The Hochstein at High Falls lunchtime summer concert series returns to the city’s High Falls District with the sounds of local music every Thursday, June 9 through August 10. Debbie Kendrick Project performs on Thursday, June 16, 2022 at 12:10 p.m. at the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge.

The concerts are hosted by WXXI Classical’s Mona Seghatoleslami. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch. Each performance will run approximately 40 minutes. 

Debbie's group has an acoustic vibe and its influences harkens back to the early days of blues, gospel, folk, and jazz music. The Debbie Kendrick Project includes drummer Pete Monacelli, a veteran of the local jazz scene; bassist Mike Patric, who also accompanies the legendary Joe Beard; and guitarist Sean Pfeifer, whose acoustic fingerstyle guitar provides a solid rhythmic background for Debbie’s powerful vocal melodies. She inspires audiences across New York and Canada with her improvisational performances, laughing with the band and chatting with the crowd.  https://www.debbiekendrickproject.com
