Sombarkin Featuring Karen Somerville, Lester Barrett, and Jerome McKinney

Chills and goose bumps, power, and grace! It come with the awesome sound of Sombarkin’. Presented with the coveted Kenny Award for their starring roles in the 2016 NYC Fringe Festival performance of  “Red Devil Moonoriginal musical theatre production; in full band accompaniment or in the A cappella,  Sombarkin’, is a trio of vocalists whose sound is so well jelled it is amazing to discover just who is singing which part. 

The group uses the skill of vocal instrumentation and harmony to deliver an explosive performance of Negro spirituals, map (code) songs, folk, gospel, and contemporary selections.  Their polyphonic technique is reminiscent to the ‘ole time religion’ and ‘campground’ style.

They bring a soulful sound with surprising jazz licks and blues bends; crafted to impress the ear with the quality of an ensemble greater in number than the trio that stands before you.

Coming to the Mainstay stage to present original and cover pieces from “Up and Over” their new 2022 album sponsored by the Hedgelawn Foundation. Sombarkin’ with the incomparable piano of Gerry Werner, and the shore’s timekeeper Ray Anthony on drums, the trio will deliver a full gospel repertoire featuring the best of their ole’ and new compositions.
