After their great success during the 2018 and 2019 Cayman Arts Festival, and in response to numerous requests for their return, KT Sullivan and her friends from New York, Natalie Douglas, Nicolas King, and Matt Baker will be here for another evening of great music.
KT Sullivan - KT was named artistic director of The Mabel Mercer Foundation in 2012. She starred in the Broadway revival of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and headlined for almost two decades in The Oak Room of The Algonquin Hotel. One of the shows she created, “Rhyme, Women, and Song” was presented on PBS’ WNET 13 and her award winning Sondheim show with Jeff Harnar was filmed for PBS from the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. She was twice named one of The Top 100 Irish Americans by Irish America Magazine.
Natalie Douglas - Called “a true force of nature,” and “in a league of her own” by Clive Davis of The Times (UK), in two five-star reviews, eight-time MAC Award Winner Natalie is a Nightlife, two time Backstage Bistro, 2014 Margaret Whiting Award & 2016 Donald F. Smith Award Winner - the latter two presented by the Mabel Mercer Foundation, for which Natalie is also a Master Teacher.
Nicolas King has been performing since age 4. He was seen first on Broadway in "Beauty & The Beast", then in "A Thousand Clowns" opposite Tom Selleck, and ‘Hollywood Arms’ directed by Hal Prince, all before age 12. Other credits include 8 consecutive annual performances on The Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, ‘The View’, ‘Today’ show, ‘Liza & David’, ‘Sally Jesse Raphael’ and twice on ‘The Tonight Show’ with Jay Leno.
Matt Baker is a fresh new face on the jazz landscape. His clean, crisp delivery is reminiscent of the true greats in entertainment. An engaging stage presence, a smooth-as-silk voice, and the gift of a storyteller all come together to complete this package. Add to that his saxophone prowess and you have one of the hottest musicians on the scene today.
Event sponsored by Ogier, Robert Loverd & Christel Ibsen, RBC Bank and KPMG and presented in conjunction with The Mabel Mercer Foundation.
