Shana Tucker Brings ChamberSoul to the Davis Theatre November 7
Not only has Shana Tucker given her unique genre its own name, “ChamberSoul,” but she has even trademarked it! A singer, songwriter and cellist, who is also a member of Cirque du Soleil’s KA, she credits the development of ChamberSoul to her jazz and classical roots blended with 1980s and 1990s pop music, movie sound tracks and world music. Tucker will be joined by three other musicians for an evening of ChamberSoul, cello and songs Saturday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m. at the Davis Theatre.
