Join us as we welcome Nekita Waller (CT's 17th State Troubadour) for an intimate concert at the historic Stanley-Whitman House (37 High St. Farmington, CT).
// ABOUT THE MUSICIAN //
Nekita has shared the stage with artists, B.B. King, Ruben Studdard, Dianne Reeves and performed on the Steve Harvey Radio Show. Nekita is an experienced studio session artist as a recording artist, lending her vocal talent on projects with Grammy and Emmy award winning producers.
Currently Nekita performs throughout the region bringing a mix of pop, Motown, soul, Jazz and classic rock favorites with original music. As a soloist, she sings the National Anthem for the NBA, WNBA, and DIV I College sports teams.
There was never a question that music would be a part of Nekita Waller's life. From her stage debut as a teen at the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem, to singing the National Anthem to thousands of spectators at professional sporting events as an adult, music defines Nekita's life.
Nekita's diverse musical journey has taken her through chorus groups, musical theater, Hartt School of Music, Gospel in church, and mentoring and performing with many independent artists.
// ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE TAVERN SERIES //
The Stanley-Whitman House's Music in the Tavern Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. No stage, no dressing room, no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Tavern series is more like being on-step-closer to the way music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories and making friends. Come check this out!
