KatieCurran Wildflower Concert



Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music, Other
Organization: THRIVE
Description: Though just 19 years old, lead vocalist and actress Katie Curran has wowed audiences of thousands at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Akron Civic Theatre, and The Kent Stage. Curran's bandmates, father & son duo, Jim Boardwine & Brett Boardwine, lead THRIVE, a northeast Ohio performing arts troupe, as President and VP respectively, and serve as Curran's co-writers, producers, and accompanists. The group also performs as a full band with touring members: Brian Poston (guitar), Bill Poston (drums), Joe Divis (bass), and a host of guest vocalists, including local powerhouse, Savannah Fitzgerald, Cheyenne Head, Aliyah Wright, and opener, Joey Boardwine.
It may seem unconventional for members and directors of a resident theater troupe to also record & perform as a country band, but in an age in which stars routinely rotate from the pop charts to Broadway and back, maybe it makes perfect sense. Last April, country girl Curran thrilled sold-out crowds as Dorothy in THRIVE's unique adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, directed by Jim Boardwine. On July 6th, she will release a 10-song country album, largely penned by writing sensation, Brett Boardwine, at a release concert in THRIVE's own 800-seat auditorium (8585 St. Rt. 14 in Streetsboro). The following night, the team will head to one of Cleveland's best live music venues - Wilbert's - for an evening show.
