From the Hum: Jazz-Folk-Amazing Meklit Hadero


Tonight at the Arcata Playhouse, a run of high quality shows continues with Bay Area jazz/folk singer and guitar player Meklit Hadero. The Ethiopian-born Hadero grew up in the U.S., attended Yale, then became a musical sensation with the release of her 2010 debut On a Day Like. Meklit has served as an artist-in-residence at New York University, the De Young Museum and the Red Poppy Art House, and completed musical commissions for the San Francisco Foundation and for theatrical productions staged by Brava! For Women in the Arts. Clearly a heavy hitter. Show at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 general, $13 members and available at Wildwood Music, Wildberries, The Works or 822-1575. More info at
