When Santa Clarita thanks its first responders Saturday, there will be a number of individuals in the spotlight. Tickets are sold out for an event recognizing sheriff’s deputies, firefighters and others for bravery during the Thomas Fire, the weeks-long blaze that began Dec. 4, 2017 in Ventura County. The event will draw Santa Clarita City Council members, high-ranking law enforcement and many members of the community amid squad cars, fire engines and search lights. Rattler’s will provide a barbecue dinner.
One of the youngest stars taking the stage at the Canyon Theatre Guild will be Savannah Burrows and her band.
“We are honoring the first responders to the recent wildfires who put their lives on the line each and every day,” Burrows said. “I feel so fortunate to do my part in giving back by performing for (them) and their families.”
The Santa Clarita teen, who is gaining acclaim for her vocal skills and meaningful lyrics, composed new songs for the event. She will be showing her versatility by playing five different musical instruments with her six-piece band.
“I write and perform only my original music based on my life experiences and those I’ve observed in others,” she explained.
Savannah Burrows has been booked for performances throughout the Southland, including: Friday, Feb. 3 opening for Wilson Phillips at The Canyon Club in Agoura; Feb 22 opening for The Spinners at The Canyon in Valencia’s Westfield Town Center Mall; March 31 opening for The Fifth Dimension, also at The Canyon in Valencia; and June 30 opening for Diamond Rio at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center.
