THIS IS A FREE EVENT
Multi-faceted husband and wife combo B-Free and Quinten Farr mark their debut at the Peck Pavilion for a lively duo performance!
As fellow MHSA alum, band leaders, educators and frequent fixtures of the local music scene, the pair will bring their modern technique and savvy musical experience to the venue by way of flute, voice, keyboard, synthesizer and loops. With a diverse repertoire steeped in the jazz, soul and R&B, the act is sure to be a treat for music lovers of all ages.
Singer, producer & multi-instrumentalist B~FREE, is a Milwaukee native who has dedicated her life to music. Her training in flute, voice and piano have earned her degrees in musical studies from the Milwaukee High School of the Arts, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania and VanderCook College of Music.
The release of her latest self-produced sophomore album, the "Ode 2 A Luv Affair LP,” was hailed as the #1 Milwaukee Album by the Journal Sentinel in 2017. B~Free currently serves her musical community as a curator, educator, and artist of all sorts. Having performed in a number of venues throughout the country, Free has shared stages with a variety of artists and provided direct support as the opening act for Janelle Monáe's Milwaukee tour date at Summerfest 2018. Her treasure chest of talents continues to catapult her up the ladder of the music scene, as she remains hungry to give music what it’s been missing: a chance to B~Free.
