Singer Christine Kane returns to WCU

Popular singer and acoustic guitarist Christine Kane returns to Western Carolina University on Thursday, March 1, as part of Women’s History Month.

The 9pm concert will take place at the Illusions nightclub in the A.K. Hinds University Center. Tickets are $2 for Western students with valid identification, $4 for all others.

Kane’s music career started when she left a very prestigious public relations firm, sold everything she owned except her guitar and moved to Asheville to play music. She soon became a regular on the Southeast music circuit and recorded her first compact disc, “This Time Last Year,” in a friend’s basement.

It wasn’t long before Kane started opening for popular performers, including Los Lobos, Nanci Griffith, Shawn Colvin, James McMurtry and Rosanne Cash. “Christine’s voice and her eye on the world are a real inspiration and joy to me,” Cash said.

Kane’s second compact disc, “A Thousand Girls,” was released in 1998. The Apple computer company chose this recording to demonstrate its popular QuickTime software at national exhibitions and on its website. She recently released her third compact disc, “Live.”
