"Songs From the Shadows"
Jill Tracy will transport you into a seductive and magical realm far beyond the Everyday. The place where we wished we lived. A dark, elegant netherworld full of hidden passageways, wonder cabinets, and opium dens. Of monsters, marvels and mayhem. You know it’s not safe here; but with Jill Tracy as your guide, you’ll be in no hurry to leave.
The San Francisco-based singer/pianist/storyteller and "sonic archeologist" has garnered multiple awards and a passionate following for her eerie and beautiful cinematic music, sophisticated lyrics, old-world glamour, and curious passion for strange tales.
At the helm of the 1903 Steinway grand, Jill Tracy returns to the ornate Presidio Officers Club Ballroom for a full concert of music, cinematic conjurings, and selected supernatural local tales she unearthed from hidden archives.
An encore performance to her smash, sold-out “Legends of the Presidio Ghosts” series (in 2015 and 2016,) Jill Tracy worked alongside Presidio historians and groundskeepers for months, touring and researching abandoned buildings, interviews, and old news records. Revel in these dark corners of history— and instrumental pieces directly inspired by these chilling tales. Plus songs from her albums.
Featuring master percussionist Randy Odell.
