FANWOOD – The Fanwood Performance Series presents singersongwriter- pianist Kate Klim and alternative-rock band Golden Dimes on Saturday evening, October 14, in the community building at Fanwood’s Forest Road Park.
With roots in Pennsylvania and Illinois, Kate Klim is now based in Nashville. After a hiatus of several years around the births of her two sons, she began recording her fourth album, “Something Green,” in 2020 – and finished it from home during the pandemic. “It’s an album about hope, love, change, and new growth,” says Ms. Klim. A review of the 2022 release in Americana Highways praised the “wonderfully composed” songs and “brilliantly upbeat light vocal approach.”
Fanwood-based Golden Dimes is the collaboration of a group of suburban dads, all lifetime musicians brought together by fate and a mutual love of great food and drink, positive vibes and making music. The band’s songs carry messages of unity, self-awareness, and responsibility, thoughtfully viewed through the lens of generation Xers wishing to do good in the world. The music is contemporary with classic sensibilities, blending keys, guitars and organic drum sounds with vocal harmony.
Showtime is 7 p.m. The suggested donation for admission is $15 or $10 for students and seniors, cash at the door. Reservations can be made by emailing email@example.com. Light refreshments are available at intermission.
The Fanwood Performance Series is a presentation of Mayor Colleen Mahr and the Fanwood Arts Council, made possible in part by a HEART (History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands) grant from the Union County Board of County Commissioners. All proceeds from admissions and refreshments help support the non-profit, volunteeroperated concert series.
