John Terlazzo and Voices in the Hall: Third in the Burg November Concert

Area favorites John Terlazzo and Voices in the Hall return to perform for November's Third in the Burg, Harrisburg's celebration of city life and its wonders.

John Terlazzo & Voices in the Hall sing Original Songs evocative of the influences of Arthur Rimbaud, William Blake, the Surrealists & the Beat Poets. Often compared to Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, & Bruce Cockburn, this trio's music has been described as "Modern Surrealist Gypsy Folk," "Marc Chagall gone aural," "Leonard Cohen meets Rumi," and "Too exotic for WalMart."

Kosi

She's more than just a drama queen. She's got piercing eyes and a voice that's larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won't fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow. First she's jazz, then she's blues, then she's rock, but always powerful. You definitely want to hear this girl sing... if you can handle it.
