Gabriela Friedman and Mark Turnbull – June 4

Beth’s Tuesdays

Gabriela Friedman and Mark Turnbull

Concerts are in person and held at the Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center – 235 Forest Ave., Laguna Beach on a Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Gabriele Friedman is a singer songwriter from Laguna Beach who now resides in Volcano, Hawaii. She has drawn inspiration from many legendary folk, blues and jazz greats – Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald – but more recently her mentor, Beth Wood. Writing and performing came to her later in life and she credits Wood with helping her carve a path toward greater expression of one’s truth in singing and songwriting.

Grammy-nominated songwriter Mark Turnbull started his performing career at the age of 5 on the Jimmy Durante Show and hasn’t looked back. His first album (1968) for Reprise Records “Portrait of the Young Artist” was a Billboard pick, and Turnbull was listed in F.M. & Fine Arts magazine (along with Randy Newman, Laura Nyro and Bob Dylan) as one of the finest songwriters of the era.

Sunday, June 9, 4-7 p.m.
