First Friday Coffeehouse to feature Victoria Vox
The March 4 First Friday Coffeehouse will feature the return of ukulele virtuoso and songwriter Victoria Vox. The event is held at Trinity Orchard House. Doors open for social time and open mic sign-up at 7 p.m. All open mic participants should be there early to get a slot to perform at one of the area`s premier listening rooms. Up to eight performers can show off their talents during the hour preceding the feature act.
Vox has won numerous awards for her songwriting, including the Independent Music Awards, the WAMMIES (six-time winner), International Acoustic Music Awards and the ADDYS. She has also donated songs to causes like the American Aspergers Association and the Duchenne Foundation. Her music has been used in indie films and featured on NPR’s “To the Best of Our Knowledge.”
Vox’s infectious pop-folk-jazz style has earned her fame worldwide. She has fan-funded several albums and a songwriting project, where Vox hunkered down in 2012 to write a song a week for the year. The “52 Original Song Project” was preceded in 2011 with a YouTube “52 Cover Song Project” where she learned and memorized 52 cover songs. A Baltimore resident, she has toured extensively in the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. She has nine CDs to her credit. Vox is also known for her mouth trumpet and even appeared on Jay Leno to blow her own horn.
Enjoy a great evening of music and fellowship. Snacks and refreshments served. Trinity Orchard House is located at 4599 Shepherdstown Road. A $10 donation per person is requested. For more information, contact Steve Warner at 304-676-4422 or 304-876-2915.
