Acoustic Renaissance Concerts presents The Refugees Nov. 18

Acoustic Renaissance Concerts welcomes The Refugees on Saturday, Nov. 18.

Cidny Bullens, Deborah Holland and Wendy Waldman formed The Refugees in 2007 and since that time have been wowing audiences, radio DJs, and music critics alike with their soaring harmonies, indelible musicianship, and humorous stage presence. Individually, they have logged almost five decades in the industry, with more than 20 solo albums and multiple Grammy Award nominations to their credit, featuring musical styles that blend country, rock, folk, blues and Americana.

Their newest album, "California," with 10 cover songs of iconic, harmony-focused California bands of the 1960s and '70s was released in May 2023.

One of the strongest components of The Refugees are their three-part vocals. Bullens had suggested The Refugees record an album of some of the bands that featured three-part harmonies and were a big influence on all three members.

The concert will be 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Hinsdale Unitarian Church, 11 W. Maple St. in Hinsdale.

Tickets are $20. Streaming tickets are also available.
