Free At Noon

Hear a Free At Noon Concert at 12noon ET from WXPN. Broadcast from the stage of World Cafe Live in Philadelphia

Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Kat Edmonson performs a live midday concert on Friday.

With a touch of soul and singer-songwriter hooks, artist Kat Edmonson joins us for this week's Free at Noon show at World Cafe Live. A singer-songwriter originally from Texas now living in Brooklyn, Edmonson was on the second season of American Idol and was part of the Top 48 in Hollywood. After several years of playing clubs in the Austin music scene, the jazz-pop artist released her debut album, Take to the Sky, in 2009. Edmonson's voice encapsulates recent-era songbirds like Amy Winehouse and Adele. Last September, she released her third album, The Big Picture, and it combines her vintage pop pipes with old fashioned saxophone-infused jazz influences. Kat Edmonson plays the Whittaker Center in Harrisburg on February 27th and The Grand Opera House in Wilmington on March 1st. Join us this Friday to watch Kat Edmonson perform at World Cafe Live – RSVP to see the show in person, or listen live at 88.5 FM in Philadelphia or
