Karla Bonoff At Newberry Opera House Feb. 28 | Arts & Culture
Karla Bonoff has been described as one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation. And in her case, that description is flat out true. The exceptional singer-songwriter will be at the Newberry Opera House on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 8 pm.
With a career spanning four decades, Bonoff has enjoyed critical acclaim, commercial success, enduring popularity and the unwavering respect of her peers.
In addition to achieving chart topping success with her own recordings, Karla has seen her songs become hits for such stellar artists as Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd and Linda Ronstadt. Many of Bonoff’s ballads are now pop classics. All the while, she has continued to tour extensively, playing sold-out shows around the world. Karla’s moving vocals and her rich, expressive songs are like standing beneath a sparkling waterfall--refreshing, exhilarating, restorative. And hearing them live can be transformative.
Bonoff's thematic songs of soul-searching, heartache and joy are on a level few can muster today. She performs on acoustic guitar and piano with special guest Kenny Edwards on electric guitar, bass, and mandolin. Her sweet, soft voice soars in the harmonies of moody ballads that are simple and direct in style and yet forceful and affecting as the emotions that love and love lost conjure. Enduring favorites include Personally, The Water Is Wide, Goodbye My Friend, Daddy’s Little Girl, Lose Again and Someone To Lay Down Beside Me. Lyrically, these songs cast spells that linger after the music wisps into silence.
