LAKEPORT, Calif. – Nesta Rae, a Kelseyville High School graduate who has made a name for herself on the national country music scene, is returning to Lake County in November for a concert and celebration of the release of her debut album entitled “Fly Free.”
The show, with full band, starts at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, with all seats selling at $15.
Andy Rossoff, local singer and pianist, opens.
“Fly Free” was released in July 2011 after a week long writing session in Nashville, Tennessee, with fellow song writers Scott Krippayne, Kent Hooper and Ron Robinson.
It chronicles Nesta's journey of letting go of the past in order to make room for the future. The songs have a beachy, acoustic pop vibe, highlighted with a little reggae, and underscored with a few darker melodic ballads.
“The ocean has always been an inspirational element in my life. I wanted this album to feel like a warm campfire after a day of surfing. You have a sense of calm as you just let the stories wash over you,” Rae said.
The Soper Reese Community Theatre, located at 275 S. Main St. in Lakeport, is a restored, historic, performing arts venue established in 1949 and seating 300 patrons.
Run by an all-volunteer organization, the theater operates under the guidance of the non-profit Lake County Arts Council.
The Soper-Reese brings dance, music, plays and poetry to all members of the Lake County community and to visiting tourists.
