Esme Kenney Memorial Benefit

Jan. 30 • Northside Tavern

By Mike Breen · January 26th, 2010 · Sound Advice
Those who pay attention to local news will no doubt remember the tragic story of 13-year-old Esme Kenney, a student at the School for Creative and Performing Arts who was murdered while jogging near her house last year. Kenney loved music, studying guitar, cello and vocals, so this Saturday's memorial show at Northside Tavern is a fitting tribute to a promising life cut way too short. Money raised at the event will go toward a memorial sculpture to be installed at the new SCPA building downtown.

The 6 p.m.

benefit will feature music from Kim Taylor (pictured), Karen Bergquist and Linford Detweiler of Over the Rhine, Ric Hordinski, The Hiders and The Chocolate Horse. Attendees will also be able to support the memorial in a silent auction featuring artwork by photographer Michael Wilson, woodcut artist Jay Bolotin and Esme's mother, Lisa Kenney.
