Bay Area singer/songwriter Kim Baker will play a free concert on Sunday, October 13, at the intimate setting of Shooting Star Bed and Breakfast overlooking the beautiful waters of the North Shore, Lake Tahoe. Meet and converse with the artist and enjoy music in a special setting.
Baker's newest album, "Waterfall," is planned for release this fall. Her previous album "Field of Plenty" is a well-praised collection of guitar-driven folk-rock songs. The new album is described as more piano-oriented. Baker earned a music degree at Oakland's Mills College. She lists the Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman, and Melissa Etheridge as some of her influences.
In addition to writing and performing music, Baker operates her own label, Earthwater Records and is in the process of establishing a charitable foundation.
Bill Matte, owner of Shooting Star Bed and Breakfast, describes Sunday's event as, "An opportunity to connect with your neighbors and strangers, make a new friend, and engage in your community. Music is the oil and you are the fuel. Shooting Star is the vehicle, with room for fellow travelers on this wide open journey of life." Matte's enthusiasm about the "uplifting" afternoon concert is very contagious. He says his intent in hosting such event is to help make the world a better place.
While the concert is free, a suggested donation of $15 to $20 is welcomed. For more information see Shooting Star Sunday with Kim Baker Facebook page
