CONWAY – The University of Central Arkansas Reynolds Performance Hall proudly presents “Tapestry: The Carole King Songbook” with Suzanne Davis on Saturday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m.
The show will include all of the music from the legendary 1971 Grammy-winning album “Tapestry” and feature many songs that Carole King and her husband, Gerry Goffin, wrote in the 1960s. The couple proved to be one of the most successful songwriting teams in pop music history, composing more than 400 songs recorded by over 1,000 artists. Some of the artists include The Drifters, The Beatles, Herman’s Hermits, Donnie Osmond, Aretha Franklin, The Shirelles, Bobby Vee and many more.
The concert performance will also bring to life many hits from the Broadway show, “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” which was at Reynolds in March 2020.
King’s “Tapestry” is one of the best-selling and most celebrated albums of all time. With heart, reverence, and impeccable attention to detail, Suzanne Davis and her band perform this entire album, plus other King hits from the 70s, completely live. Davis’s performance takes the audience on a journey back to those great recordings with stories about the music history of Carole King’s incredible career.
Davis has been in the music industry for many years with her journey taking her across the globe from the Middle East to Texas and Cuba performing as a keyboardist, vocalist and tribute artist. Her versatility keeps her in demand and involved in all aspects of a musician’s life.
Having played on some of the finest stages to standing ovations around the world, Davis has toured in production tribute shows to Abba, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago and many other variety shows. She has had the opportunity to share stages and open up for acts such as America, KC and the Sunshine Band, Taylor Dayne, Eddie Money, Orleans, Gary Puckett, The Village People and BJ Thomas. She continues this amazing journey with her latest and most heartfelt tribute to Carole King.
This show has been receiving standing ovations and playing to sold-out audiences in Canada and the U.S. Not only does Davis channel the characteristics of King at the piano, but her comfortable stage presentation really endears her to the audience.
“I really like to have fun and talk with the audience about the history of the songs. I think people want to feel that we’re all sharing these moments together — and we are,” Davis said.
