Rebecca Kilgore is one of America's leading song stylists who finds particular delight in preserving and interpreting the music of the Great American Songbook.
With over 30 recordings in her discography, some of her most notable are with Dave Frishberg on piano, and she has teamed with him on long standing engagements in Portland, Oregon, where they both reside.
You can hear her in The Rebecca Kilgore Quartet (formerly known as BED): with Eddie Erickson (guitar/banjo/voice), Dan Barrett (trombone), and Joel Forbes (bass), which captivates audiences with its eclectic repertoire of classic jazz. She has been invited to perform with the Statesmen Of Jazz, dedicated to perpetuating the art of jazz for future generations.
She regularly performs worldwide at jazz festivals, jazz parties, and on jazz cruises. She is a frequent guest on National Public Radio's 'Fresh Air' with Terry Gross, has appeared on ‘A Prairie Home Companion’, and with Michael Feinstein at Carnegie Hall.
