Tickets are sold at $10 ($12 on the day of the show) and will partly benefit the Mary Queen of Heaven Missionaries, a duly-registered non-profit in the US that rescues prostituted children in the Philippines and provides them free education.

This is Kathy’s first show since February 2020.
Kathy Zimmer is recommended for fans of Phoebe Bridgers, Joan Baez, Kacey Musgraves. Equipped with beautiful storytelling talents and an enchanting voice, the NYC-based singer-songwriter Kathy Zimmer fuses folk with pop, and describes her style as “cosmopolitan folk.” Think: sophisticated, sincere, smart, accessible with a variety of identifiable influences including country music, 1960s girl groups and classic pop singer-songwriters.
Kathy will be performing new songs written over the past year and a half.
Ms. Zimmer has several releases of her music, most recently a vinyl record in 2019 combining two EPs, “White Noise” and “Sparkling Smile,” and a separate single, a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.”
From Nebraska, where she grew up and went to college, Kathy attended the Cleveland Institute of Music for her masters. She came to New York City at a time when artists including Regina Spektor, Stepfani Germanotta, and Rachel Platten were new to the scene. All four have done alright in their music careers.
Rock n’ Reel Magazine has declared her the “latter day Joan Baez.” The Roots Music Report proclaims, “At various turns enchanting, haunting and soothing—and at times a bit of all of these—Ms. Zimmer’s sophisticated song crafting never fails to charm.”
