  6. Storm Large, vocalist

    April 13, 9:00 PM - 11:00 PM @ Granby Theater

    “It’s hard not to fall in love with Storm Large. She draws the eye in a curve-hugging floor-length white gown, plunging neckline and shock of long, blond curls but it’s her voice that really tugs at heartstrings. Part angelic, part gut-wrenching rock growls and soul-shaking soul….This is a woman in her prime. A fierce commander of the stage…we leave smitten.” -Adelaide Now Storm Large is…a musician, actor, playwright, author, awesome! She shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show Rock Star: Supernova, where despite having been eliminated in the week before the finale, Storm built a fan base that follows her around the world to this day. In this back-by-popular-demand Festival engagement, Storm takes the stage at the Granby Theater, thrilling fans and new admirers alike with her wit, wardrobe, and way with a song.
