Canton Connections is hosting a Flatbread and Ben & Jerry’s night on Tuesday evening, April 5th to raise money for the program. The KC Sisters and Charles Paul will provide live musical entertainment at Flatbread during the evening, so recruit some friends and join us for a fun, family evening in support of Canton Connections!
Flatbread evening runs from 5-9pm and they will donate a percentage of all flatbread sales (eat in or take out) during that time period to Canton Connections.
Ben & Jerry’s runs from 4-10pm and will be donating a percentage of sales from that period of time back to Canton Connections.
The KC Sisters
Harkening back to the heyday of family groups, with a rootsy, Americana sound that incorporates folk, country, gospel, R&B and jazz, The KC Sisters are emerging as recording artists with the release of their debut EP featuring the original vocal ballad “Daddy Came Home” and the lively, multiple violin driven instrumental “How The Irish Won The West.” The five members of The KC Sisters range in age from 12 to 18 have shared their dynamic, harmony driven vocal and instrumental excitement in hundreds of performances throughout their home state of Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York. The KC Sisters can be regularly heard on WTIC “The Damon Scott Show” and were runners-up in the Infinity Hall Open Mic Invitational in 2016. In May, the girls will be traveling to Nashville TN as part of a 4-day call back for The Extreme Music and Sports Tour.
What sets The KC Sisters apart from any other group of musical siblings or indie bands is their musical diversity, transcendent ease with three and four part harmonies, and the fact that each sister is a multi-talented vocalist and musician skilled in a variety of instruments. Deanna (18) and Noelle (16), who wrote “Daddy Came Home” with their father, the group’s producer and arranger Chris Casey, play violin, piano, drums, guitar and bass. Their younger sisters are 14-year-old Tasha (violin, drums, piano, bass) and 12 year olds Elise (violin, cello, bass, piano, drums) and Kathleen (violin, bass, drums, piano). Their shows include multi-harmonized vocals, instrumentals, country fiddling, a cappella hymns, pop, jazz, standards and country music.
The KC Sisters released an independent holiday album called Winter Wonderland a few years ago and will be releasing a two track EP as a teaser for the many recordings that will be coming in the months ahead. A subsequent EP will include their fresh renditions of “Don’t Worry Be Happy” and the classic hymns “Amazing Grace” and “Just A Closer Walk With Thee.” They will also be recording three new originals, “Love Life” (penned by Tasha), “Fly With Me”, and “Touch The Sky,” as well as “Lean On Me” and “How Great Thou Art,” and five others this Spring. Many of their live performances are available for viewing on YouTube.
Charles Paul is a singer/song writer from Connecticut. He began music studies on the piano at the age of 5 and quickly developed an interest in the guitar, with a focus on both classical and finger style techniques. At the age of 14 he began exploring songwriting. Following his attendance at a Matt Maher concert, his interest became a passion. One of Charles Paul’s first original songs, Rainfall, won the annual Miller Music Songwriting Competition in 2014. In the same year, Charles released his debut EP, Learning to Dance in the Rain. This release prompted Charles Paul to start performing across New England at bistros, local and state fairs. A year later, he released his first, full-length, studio album, SKYWARD, featuring 9 original songs. At age 15, Charles Paul is working hard to stretch his musical and songwriting skills while entertaining fans across New England.
