Shameless Plug: Meg Clifton Mitchell singing TONIGHT at Atwater Kent

Posted July 27th, 2010

Our individual giving manager here at Live Arts/Fringe, Meg Clifton Mitchell, has a “secret life.” When she’s not making sure we have the funds to keep the Festival going, she’s crooning jazz tunes around the city. Tonight she’s performing at the Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent‘s event Sounds of Philadelphia: Conversations on Jazz with Bob Perkins. The night of performance and talk will be hosted by legendary jazz DJ Bob “BP with the GM” Perkins and will explore the history of Philly jazz.

“It’s exciting to be celebrating Philly jazz because I’ve been singing in this city for a long time,” says Meg.

Meg got her Master of Music in Jazz Studies at UArts, and her style has been described as “swinging with a fresh and sexy quality” and “rich with the knowledge of jazz vocal history.” Listen to her sing modern and classic jazz standards with bassist Lee Clark tonight at 6 PM at Conversation Hall (room 201) at City Hall. Can’t make it tonight? Meg also performs regularly at Chris’s Jazz Cafe.
