Brainchild of respected and trusted singers / arrangers / producers Janis Siegel (The Manhattan Transfer) and Lauren Kinhan (New York Voices), Vocal Gumbo is a virtual music festival created to bring the vocal music community together across the miles to inspire and entertain a world standing still during uncertain times. This past year – while forced off the road due to the global pandemic – Siegel and Kinhan have wrangled living legends, Grammy winners, and up-and-coming superstars to produce one-of-a-kind collaborations and curate incredible DIY, at-home performances to share in this monthly music feast.
