THE KANREKI CONCERT BENEFIT
KIRKLAND PERFORMANCE CENTER
November 19 @ 7pm


Seattle-area singer/songwriter David Duvall is celebrating his 60th birthday and the release of 2 new CD's with a live concert, 'THE KANREKI CONCERT,' at the Kirkland Performance Center (350 Kirkland Ave., Kirkland) with proceeds benefiting the Jewish Voice for Peace/Network Against Islamophobia and the Organization for Refugee Asylum & Migration. The concert will start at 7pm and will feature a number of special guest vocalists and a collection of the Seattle area's finest jazz and rock musicians. The program will include excerpts from Duvall's latest CDs plus a few socially relevant songs from decades past.

Tickets for THE KANREKI CONCERT can be purchased by calling the KPC box office at 425-893-9900 or on line at http://www.kpcenter.org/event/david-duvall-kanreki-concert/. Tickets are $35 for premium seating, $25 general seating and $10 for students.

Regarding this press release, David Duvall writes:

I know I've given you way more info here than you can use. I don't expect you to use any more than you feel you need. I'm just wanting to do all I can to give you what you need to encourage the Seattle LGBT community to come to this event so that we can collectively help as many LGBTI people as possible out of their difficult, life-threatening situations. (I can't imagine daily facing what they face and/or having to be so constantly 'in the closet' to survive!)

About David Duvall:
Duvall has been a professional entertainer for over 40 years, spending most of that time working as a musical director for theatres around western Washington and Montana and performing as pianist/conductor behind many celebrated nightclub and concert vocalists with just shy of 400 productions to his credit. For his work as a television composer he has received two Emmy nominations (including one win). In 2015, Duvall shifted his focus to being a singer/songwriter and released his CD Occasional Spells of Clarity last year to critical and popular acclaim. Coinciding with this concert, his latest CD Observation & Commentary will be released at this event. Duvall's music runs the gamut of musical styles - 'The only musical category you could safely put me in is 'Variety' ', says Duvall. His CDs include primarily original songs that range from Classic Rock to Jazz to Pop to Latin to Gospel to Bluegrass to R&B to New Age Instrumental and beyond.

David says: 'Being a bisexual, partial Chippewa, 60-year old father of two 20-something 'half-rican' daughters (their preferred terminology) with my first wife, a full-time 'artist', spiritual-not-religious, teacher-of-teens, currently happily monogamously married to a woman 14-years my senior, my life intersects with a great many demographics of the American landscape - and my music & lyrics work towards connecting all of those demographics in the hopes of helping us all understand the family that we are.'

'After a recent concert, one of the men in the audience came up to me and said: 'You handle emotionally difficult songs so well. I don't know how you are able to write and sing some of those songs.... you take topics we've lived through and have pushed to one side, but you've got the balls to bring it out in the open and discuss it! Thanks for making me not feel so alone about these things....' '

About Kanreki:
Kanreki (pronounced: 'Kahn-REE-key') is an important event in many Asian cultures celebrating a person's 60th birthday. The Chinese zodiac is a 60-year cycle, so when someone reaches their 60th birthday their astrological journey starts anew - so, in essence, one's 60th year is the beginning of one's second childhood and a year devoted to reflection. It is in this spirit that Duvall wanted to use this concert to raise much-needed funds for two organizations he is passionate about supporting.

About KANREKI CONCERT musical guests:
Joining Duvall for this concert are popular Seattle nightclub entertainers Laurie Clothier, Stephanie Anne Johnson - who achieved popularity on Season 5 of 'The Voice,' Kirkland-based vocalist Kim Maguire and Seattle R&B/Jazz vocalist Tanesha Ross, who also appeared in several shows at the 5th Avenue Theatre, the recent National Tour of 'HAIR,' and was part of the first season of 'American Idol.' All these vocalists are longtime friends of Duvall's - Clothier and Duvall began their professional collaborations in 1977 - and all are featured on his recordings. The musicians joining Duvall have all performed on his recordings as well, and are among the most recognizable names in Seattle music: Cary Black (bass), Bill Branvold (trombone), Bruce Carpenter (flute, oboe, saxes), Rich Cole (flute, saxes), Don Dieterich (drums), Tracey Hooker (trumpet), Don Miller of the band 'ThorNton Creek' (guitar), Ernesto Pediangco (percussion) and Doug Zangar (guitar). Cellist Margaret Thorndill of the Tacoma Symphony, and formerly of 'The Love Unlimited Orchestra,' will make a special guest appearance to perform one of Duvall's instrumental pieces included on his latest CD. Other 'surprise guests' are expected to appear as well.

About Network Against Islamophobia:
NAI, a project of Jewish Voice for Peace, was created to serve as a resource to, and work with, Jewish Voice for Peace chapters and other groups interested in organizing against Islamophobia and anti-Arab racism. They partner with the broader, Muslim-led movement against Islamophobia. NAI facilitates online resource-sharing of FAQs, public letters, press statements, articles, and other materials. 'I wanted to contribute to alleviating the fear that spawns the unnecessary hatred and bigotry of ALL people, but right now it seems our immediate attention needs to be given here,' says Duvall. 'The ignorance of Islam and the unnecessary fears that are being needlessly fueled need to be countered by actual facts and understanding. I was so impressed with one organized religion's efforts to work towards the greater understand of another religion! I wish there were more of that in this world&.'

About Organization for Refugee Asylum & Migration:
Founded in 2008, specializes in the protection of exceptionally vulnerable refugees, including LGBTI refugees. Trusted by governments, international agencies and refugees alike, ORAM's work enables the international community to protect asylum seekers, safeguarding the integrity of the international refugee protection system. Duvall: 'It's so important to remember that we are not just U.S. citizens but global citizens as well. As a member of the LGBT community, I have been growing increasingly concerned not just for maintaining Equality in our own nation, but for doing what we can to aid those in need of fleeing nations where they still face imprisonment or death for living as who they are. I wanted to use half of this concert's proceeds to help this cause as well. I yearn for a more Gene Roddenberry-esque planet where everyone has the freedom to be who they are.'

About co-sponsor SEATTLE INDIVISIBLE
Seattle Indivisible is a grassroots organization dedicated to defeating the regressive Trump agenda, including the uptick in Islamophobia and anti-immigrant sentiment stoked by the hatred and fear mongering from this administration.

Tickets for THE KANREKI CONCERT can be purchased by calling the Kirkland Performance Center Box Office at 425-893-9900 or online at http://www.kpcenter.org/event/david-duvall-kanreki-concert/. Tickets are $35 for premium seating, $25 general seating and $10 for students.
