In the Key of C: a Concert for Clermont Featuring special guest Danielia Cotton
Saturday, July 30, 2022 06:30 PM
Clermont State Historic Site
Support Friends of Clermont and enjoy an evening of music by the river! With a powerful first album that launched her career, "Small White Town," Danielia was selected as "Artist to Watch'' by WXPN out of Philadelphia. Danielia's personal life is just as varied as the genres explored in her music, embracing a variety of religions as "JewBu'' (a Jewish Buddhist), a cancer survivor and a woman who today channels her struggles within her gritty, Motown-steeped music. Now a mother of a three-year old daughter and training for her 6th cancer marathon, Danielia uses her gritty rock ‘n' roll music to confront the social, political, and racial turmoil of the past and looks to grander, grounded possibilities in the future. Her new album Good Day is out now. Tickets are $10/advance and $15/door. Children 12 and under are welcomed free of charge. The concert will take place under a tent outdoors and seating will be provided. To purchase tickets, visit www.friendsofclermont.org/concertforclermont
