Laguna Canyon Winery Monthly Wine Tasting
I know that I already posted today, but I forgot to announce tonight’s performance. I hate to be the one to bombard your inboxes with multiple posts, so I’ll try not to forget next time!
I’ll be performing tonight at the beautiful Laguna Canyon Winery as part of their monthly wine tasting event. If you’re up for some great wine, food and music, the tasting is 6-9pm. For more info, visit http://www.lagunacanyonwinery.com or http://www.shannon-kennedy.com
These last few weeks have been gloriously filled with music-making, rehearsing, composing, lyric writing and long practice sessions. I have been playing my new BG France ligature and absolutely loving every moment of it – I practice even more just so I can use it. I played with it at my Laguna Canyon Winery performance and I was so happy with its response! I better hurry up and order one for my tenor and another for my soprano soon.
As you know, I’ve been in the studio writing and recording two projects – Behind Your Eyes *my first full vocal album* and Le Printemps *the third in my Unfinished Compositions series.* Le Printemps will be out later this month and I’m really excited about it. Once Le Printemps is done, there is only one more EP left in the series – the entire collection will also feature a few bonus tracks. For those who subscribe to my email list, you actually receive one of the unreleased bonus tracks for free (but shh, that’s a secret).
I’ve finally finished writing all the songs for Behind Your Eyes, I’m in the middle of recording everything for the tracks and finishing up the lyrics. The album will be out this Fall.
I’ve also been rehearsing with South Coast Singers for their summer concert series. We have three performances this month in South Orange County and almost all three shows are already sold out! At the end of the month, I will be performing at Anthology with Taboo Band, a Sade tribute group.
Just a quick post to let you know I will be performing at Laguna Canyon Winery’s monthly wine tasting this Friday, June 1, 2012 at 6pm. Below is the featured menu by the talented Chef Pascal.
Hope to see you there!

Last night I played at Laguna Canyon Winery – it’s this really great winery near Laguna Beach with one of my favorite Meritage wines.
The venue is very intimate and beautiful and the food and the wine are always fantastic. They do wine tastings every month and if you haven’t been, I really recommend you doing so! It also has a really great history – it is owned by two brothers from Canada and the beautiful and elaborate cabinetry was built by their father.
I also have to mention the chef, Pascal, who does a great job creating unique meals!
