Wet Paint Closing Gala

The closing Gala will take place in the new event tent at The Preserve at Chocorua.

7:30 - 9:30pm Judith Owens in Concert - tickets $25.00 available here
Pianist-singer-songwriter Judith Owen is known for her love of musical variety and melding it into a great stylistic gumbo all her own. Her latest release, ‘Somebody’s Child’ is the culmination of this mix: voice and piano front and centre, songs that are vignettes of life crafted from the perspective that we ARE all “somebody’s child” – parental as well as planetary. An album about us. 

The album features the legendary Leland Sklarr on bass, and master percussionist Pedro Segundo, both will join her at The Preserve on May 12th, for the closing event of the 2nd annual Wet Paint. Sklarr is very familiar to music fans and has has played across 2,000 albums, for the likes of Phil Collins, Billy Cobham, Rod Stewart, James Taylor, Hall & Oates, Jackson Browne, David Bowie, Ray Charles, B.B. King, The Doors and countless others.  

Judith, Leland and Pedro recently returned from an extended tour in Europe, the UK and Russia, opening for Bryan Ferry
