Thomasina Winslow to play Upbeat on the Roof at the Tang
The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College present the critically acclaimed Americana and blues musician Thomasina Winslow as part of the Upbeat on the Roof concert series on Thursday, Aug. 5, at 6 p.m.
Blues singer Thomasina Winslow’s snappy guitar chops and rich warm vocals have made her a staple of the Capital Region music scene. An educator, producer, world traveler, and historian of Americana, Winslow’s powerful voice makes her a true ambassador of the blues. This is Winslow’s Upbeat debut.
Winslow is a staple of the Capital Region music community, performing regularly at the Clearwater Great Hudson River Revival for over a decade. She has performed since age 4, first with her father, Tom Winslow, a regular collaborator of folk icon Pete Seeger. A virtuosic performer, Winslow also works as a music educator and producer. Delta blues and folk stand out as the most prominent influences on Winslow’s music, though she takes inspiration from across the musical world: funk, Afropop, and even Eric Clapton all find their way on her long list of influences.
This summer’s Upbeat on the Roof concerts will take place on the Tang lawn near the campus outdoor volleyball courts. Visitors are welcome to bring blankets, chairs, and coolers, and are advised to arrive early as capacity is limited. Free parking is available off Perimeter Road, next to the museum. In case of rain, the event will be canceled.
The Upbeat on the Roof concert series, now in its twentieth season, features an eclectic mix of musicians from across the Capital Region.
The series continues with Sun is Poison (Aug 12) and Heavenly Echoes (Aug 19).
