After sell-out concerts year after year at Volcano Art Center, Rebecca Folsom is returning to Volcano Art Center’s Ni‘aulani Campus for another intimate acoustic concert, An Evening with Rebecca Folsom, on Saturday, March 10, 2018, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Rebecca Folsom

Her music has been described as possessing the soulfulness of Etta James, the abandon of Janis Joplin and a touch of folk songstress Joni Mitchell. An award-winning artist, she has performed on BBC radio and television, Nashville’s Bluebird, New York’s Bitterend and Red Rock’s Amphitheatre in Colorado. “She takes you from subtle ballads to knock-you-to-your-knees blues.” said KUNC Radio.

Corridor Magazine wrote, “While her range is impressive, it’s the expression in her voice that rivets your attention and stays with you long after the show ends. Folsom’s voice pours from an inner source of honest emotion, flowing from lilting tenderness to fully liberated, unbridled release.” Her music career has spanned over 20 years.

The Boulder, Colorado native writes inspiring tales of human heartbreak, redemption and freedom. She shares those songs with exquisite intimacy in a solo performance. Folsom said performing on stage is where she feels most comfortable. “There is no place on earth that I want to be more. I’m happiest there, time flies there. It’s timeless, effortless and it brings me so much joy. My hope is always that it will bring other people joy, upliftment and awakening,” she said.


She will also be offering the “The Art of Vocal Freedom” workshop Sunday, March 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Learn to sing and express authentically with ease and flow, tapping into your own personal vocal freedom! We will uncover and polish the beauty and power of your individual authentic voice. Attendees will be able to work/play with all three artistic mediums at the same time. Cost for the workshop is $50.

Folsom said working with students made touring a much more rich affair. “The whole experience got deeper, because rather than just showing up in a town, we are immersed in the community,” she said.
