Feature - Monday, February 25




Jazz duo, Roberto Mighty & Kathryn Howell perform standards & originals with a distinctive blend of guitar, vocals, bass, ukelele, and occasionally spoken word.

Roberto Mighty started playing guitar at age 13 and co-founded his first group a year later. After years as a bandleader and lead guitarist, he built a recording studio and spent the next ten years as a writer, arranger and producer of music for radio and TV. Roberto also wrote and produced many programs for television including the critically-acclaimed Banquo's Wagon music video series for children, and is a popular guitar teacher on YouTube. 


His musical influences include Frank Sinatra, Jose Feliciano, Joe Pass, Al Jarreau, Cassandra Wilson, Nat King Cole, George Benson and Jimi Hendrix. "My guitar and singing styles emphasize the sensuality of the lyrics and chord changes. I try to play as dynamically as possible on my Brazilian flamenco guitar.
 
Kathryn Howell began singing at 3yrs old and by 11 was studying several instruments (piano, guitar, violin, and organ). She was composing and working as a singer and actress in theaters around New England at 16yrs old.

As a member of the Actor s Equity Association, Kathryn has had the pleasure of performing in venues such as the Charles Street Playhouse and The Wilbur theater in downtown Boston.


Her musical roots are in classical study, jazz /blues, and musical theater, her artistic influences include Sarah Vaughn, Chet Baker, Joni Mitchell, Shirley Horn, Blossom Dearie, Eileen Farrell, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Luciano Pavarotti, as well as World Music with its richly diverse and talented artists.
