The amazing talent of Devon McClive Saturday, March 27th at 5:00 pm via Zoom
Devon McClive, internationally renowned performer
San Francisco-based cellist, pianist, singer, and songwriter Devon McClive, will perform a solo pandemic lock-down set on Zoom for The Club at Westpoint on Saturday, March 27th at 5:00 pm. Devon has a powerful and deeply-talented musical voice that comes through in everything she does; whether it’s fronting her own gypsy-folk-rock-jazz band, lending her talents as a cellist to successful touring projects, or as a solo performer mixing cello, piano, and vocals in live loop-based soundscapes, she always sounds like the singular artist she is. This performance will showcase her ability to weave one-of-a-kind sonic paintings through catchy songs born of layered musical textures that are never played the same way twice. You won’t want to miss it!
