The amazing Lina Koutrakos who presented her Cabaret Intensive workshop last month in DC remains a busy, busy lady:

Mohegan Sun on March 18th

Lina Koutrakos and the Low Country Band are coming to Mohegan Sun. This artist, a near to cult figure at this point in New York City, is finally taking her powerful original material, mixing in a bunch of classic rock and roll covers and taking it “on the road” starting at The Wolfden Wednesday March 18th. A definite sophisticated urban songwriter this powerful live performers music has a healthy “southern accent”! Koutrakos has been reviewed in major publications as being “An earthquake and earth mother”, “A smokey volcano of passion” and “Lightning in a bottle”. After selling out B. B Kings in Times Square the New York Times asks the question:”Why isn’t she a household name?” and Billboard Magazine calls her “The real thing!”  — Wednesday March 18th. 7p.m The Wolfden/Mohegan Sun

LINA KOUTRAKOS: The Low Country Plus DVDThe Low Country

And if you don’t have Koutrakos’s CD/DVD The Low Country, why don’t you?  It lives a little more on the rock stage than the cabaret room, but it’s an amazing bit of work!

And if all that weren’t enough, she’s even directing Debbie Barber Eaton’s show, every Other Inch a Lady, which will be at Germano’s Trattoria on May 14th.
