BENEFIT CONCERT FOR ST. MARTIN’S SCHOOL

TO DAD WITH LOVE: A TRIBUTE TO BUDDY EBSEN
FEATURING SINGER KIKI EBSEN
A veteran singer-songwriter and accomplished musician who’s toured internationally for 20 years, Kiki was inspired to record and release the CD, “Scarecrow Sessions,” in tribute to her father’s vast career. Its debut was in time for Father’s Day. Songs from this album provide fans new insight into Buddy’s talents as a dramatic actor as well as accomplished dancer. Response to “Scarecrow Sessions” was so strong that she and her brother Dustin have created a multimedia showcase of personal stories and beautiful photo memories and magical songs in tribute to one of America’s most beloved true pioneers of the entertainment industry.
Actor Buddy Ebsen was perhaps best known for his television roles in the 1960s and 1970s. His fans, however, may not know as much about the first 30 years of his career, as a dancer on Broadway, and in early films. Were it not for fate, American children would have had 75 years to enjoy him in the role of the Scarecrow in “The Wizard of Oz.” It was the role of a lifetime, but it was also the one that got away.
Free Admission. An offering to benefit St. Martin’s School will be taken.
