Review: Kathy Brown US Embassy LT concert

Kathy Brown launches Ambassador's concert series
Michael Reckord, Gleaner Writer

The launch, of what is intended to be a regular noontime concert series, hosted by United States Ambassador, Brenda La Grange, took place at the United States Embassy on Friday.
Dr Kathy Brown was the featured musician. In addition to being a practising medical doctor, the multi-talented Brown plays, sings, composes and arranges music. She's also a band leader and recording artiste.
Seated at her Kurzweil K2500X keyboard half-way up the curvilinear iron stairs, she gave evidence of only some of those talents in her 45-minute concert, but the eight items she presented were quite delightful
Kathy Brown's upcoming performances:
June 15 - Ocho Rios Jazz Festival - Shaw Park Beach Hotel
June 27 - Antigua
June 29 - Pegasus Jazz in the Gardens
