Jazz Singer Karrin Allyson Is Back In Kansas City
A gypsy life isn't unusual among musicians and Karrin Allyson certainly leads one. Her official biography includes a childhood in the Midwest, schooling in the Bay area, a stint in Minneapolis, a home base now in New York City and tours that take her around the world.
But it was here in Kansas City that her recording career began and she has returned for a gig at The Folly Theatre. On this edition of Up to Date, Allyson stops by the studio to talk with Steve Kraske about her latest release, Yuletide Hideaway, and her life in jazz.
