Every second Friday, Public Market presents the Market Beats series. It’s a way to unwind from the busy week, chill out with friends, grab a bite to eat and listen to some of the best in Bay Area music.
These monthly Friday evenings are catching on, with folks buzzing about the top quality of musicians appearing at the Market.
March 10th is no exception. Market Beats presents Katie Garibaldi, a San Francisco native who is making a splash with her roots-inspired songwriting, tender vocals and rich arrangements.
Katie is fresh off winning some prestigious awards, including the LA Music Critics Award for Best Americana Artist. With accolades from the Indie Music Channel and write-ups in Guitar Player Magazine, Katie is a gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist who has fostered a devoted fan base through her nationally-touring shows.
Music Connection magazine says, “Garibaldi is blessed with a sweet and pure soprano, and we hear a sincerity in this artist that is real.”
No Depression magazine, the most influential alt-country/folk publication in the country, had high praise for Katie in a recent column: “Katie sings with vibrancy, hitting high notes even Joni Mitchell would appreciate. Her words, music and performance on ‘Delightful’ are just that – delightful. Backed by some purring violins and cello – with a straight ahead melodic drive Katie packs a wonderful folky extravagance… This woman doesn’t have to prove a thing to anyone – she is a powerhouse driven by an intoxicating vocal tone. It reaches heights that are so easy on the ear that it’s a treat, a pleasure to listen to. The voice – free of bombastic notes – is just pure musicality.”
This is a show you won’t want to miss, so – years from now – you can say “I saw Katie Garibaldi up close when she performed at the Public Market!”
