Folk-pop songstress AJ Odneal is back and will be beaming to you live from ASU Kerr! We kicked off our first-ever Beams series show last April with Odneal performing from home, and we had to bring her to the venue to commemorate the past year of challenges, growth and discovery. Her jazz and pop-inspired folk music features soothing guitar and ukulele, blended with her clever lyrics and sweet, emotive voice. Watch online and chat with one of our favorite Beams artists!

Beams: a live online music series - one year anniversary!
Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m.
Watch live at youtube.com/asukerr
or facebook.com/asukerr
We’re celebrating the Beams’ series first voyage around the sun with an ASU Kerr friend and fave, Rising Sun Daughter--the solo collaborative project of Grace Rolland. Her 2019 EP “I See Jane” landed among the top 10 PopMatters' folk albums of that year. Rolland has a long musical history, raised in a family of skilled musicians and music educators. Along with her serene, stirring voice, Rolland is classically trained on the cello, guitar and piano. Her history with ASU Kerr goes way back into her youth. Her father brought her to the venue to listen to his many bands and perform, and more recently she played with her beloved folk ensemble, Run Boy Run. Tune in live to chat, listen and toast to one year of livestreaming amazing Arizona musicians on Beams!

ASU Kerr is a historic Valley venue that is part of ASU Cultural Affairs. Our small staff and facility strive to present a diverse mix of live music, storytelling and theater in order to share the unique perspectives of local, national and international artists. World music, indie folk, jazz, soul, baroque pop and more grace our stage each season. We currently produce free live streamed events to give greater access to music and storytelling programs, providing performance opportunities for artists and maintaining the connection between ASU Kerr, audiences, the arts and one another.

We are shouldering unprecedented costs in creating paid performance opportunities for artists that are free to the public during the venue's temporary hiatus. As a self-sustaining venue, our only income streams are ticket sales, rental bookings, concessions and the contributions of donors.

Consider helping sustain ASU Kerr with a donation to the venue. We are doing our best to bring the joy of music and the arts to you in new ways, and hope those able to financially support the venue's mission of Connecting Communities™ will do so. Your help is vital in ensuring that the shows will go on--online for now--and in person once it is safe for us to gather again.
