Learn more about their new album!
The Lawrence Arts Center’s Downtown Underground Concert Series is proud to present: An Evening with the Refugees.
Join this American Folk musical trio to celebrate the release of their newest full-length album.
The Refugees emerged on the music scene as a verifiably unmatched force of talent, diversity, and experience. Grammy-nominated singer-songwriters Wendy Waldman, Cidny Bullens, and Deborah Holland had performed extensively in separate group projects and as solo artists before forming the Refugees in 2007. Since 2007, the trio has been wowing audiences with their harmonies, musicianship, and humorous stage presence.
Cidny Bullens was a backing vocalist for Elton John in the mid-‘70s, briefly a participant in Dylan’s famous Rolling Thunder Revue tour (she left that to join Elton). She had three songs on the Grease soundtrack and has put out several excellent albums, two of which were nominated for best female rock album Grammys. Autobiography, “Trans-Electric,” which comes out in May.
Deb Holland was a member of MTV band Animal Logic with bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Stewart Copeland of the Police. They just put out their first new music in 30 years, to great acclaim and also has several solo albums.
Wendy Waldman is a longtime LA-based singer-songwriter (several albums) and one of the first female music producers. Co-wrote “Save the Best For Last” for Vanessa Williams, which was a #1 hit and Grammy nominated (Wendy was Vanessa’s plus-one for the Grammys!). Also wrote songs for Madonna, Celine Dion and Earth Wind and Fire. Backing vocalist for Linda Ronstadt, Randy Newman, Reba McIntire, Jimmy Buffett, Bette Midler and many others.
