Friends of Lasa Sanctuary benefit concert featuring Michael Kelsey

Oct 10, 2017 11:01AM

The Friends of Lasa Sanctuary are fully sponsoring a benefit concert featuring Michael Kelsey that will take place at The Kent Stage on Friday, November 17. Doors will open at 7 pm and the concert will begin at 8 pm.

Lasa Sanctuary is an all‐volunteer, publicly funded 501c nonprofit animal rescue in northeast Ohio. Lasa Sanctuary aims to provide lifelong care and sanctuary to animals rescued from situations of cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. Currently there are over 140 animals in their care encompassing 19 different species. Please visit lasasanctuary.org to learn more about this wonderful sanctuary!

Michael Kelsey brings a free‐flowing improvisational style to the guitar that involves every inch of his instrument. From his funky, percussive playing style that conjures an image of a one‐man version of STOMP to lush instrumentals reminiscent of Michael Hedges/Phil Keaggy, his performance blends multiple musical genres and vocals along with some techno fun to create a sound all his own. He is the winner of Guitar Center's "Guitarmageddon". Chosen from among 3,000 entrants the singer‐songwriter performed at Eric Clapton's Crossroads 2004 where he shared the stage with many legendary guitarists.

Throughout a performance Michael may make use of technology, his improv skills, objects in the room, and audience interaction to make music for the ears but more importantly a musical experience for the senses.

Tickets are $25 general admission. The full $25 ticket price will go to Lasa Sanctuary to help them make a difference in more lives. Tickets are on sale at www.kentstage.org where the full calendar of concerts can be accessed. Tickets also available by phone at 877‐987‐6487.
