Grammy-winning vocalist coming to 24th Street Theatre

Jazz and blues vocalist Catherine Russell will perform in the newly restored 24th Street Theatre at 7 p.m. March 26.

Russell is touring behind her new record, “Alone Together,” her seventh studio album. She draws on composers and lyricists Irving Berlin, Eddie de Lange, Jimmy Van Heusen, Nat Cole and Louis Jordan.

Russell and her touring band have visited four continents, appearing in major festivals, while also selling out concert halls in San Francisco, New York and Moscow.

She has worked with David Bowie, Steely Dan, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, Michael Feinstein, Levon Helm, Wynton Marsalis and Rosanne Cash.

In 2012, Russell received a Grammy as a featured artist on the soundtrack of the TV series “Boardwalk Empire.” The show is promoted by Swell Productions, a partnership of Mindy Giles of 10th Avenue and Steve Nikkel of 23rd Street.

Opening the show is Sacramento’s own Proxy Moon, four multi instrumentalist musicians with diverse backgrounds. The band uses traditional and non-traditional instruments, including “the junk,” made up of a ball-peen hammer and heavy iron coupler.

Tickets are $40 general admission.
