The Voice’s Kata Hay Hits Tucson
Monterey Court presents a concert by former The Voice TV show contestant Kata Hay and her traveling partner Dan O’Rourke, who are on tour from Nashville doing their unique brand of Indie folk. The program includes a performance of the song “Where am I from?” by folk-rock artist Dan O’Rourke, who blends his lifestyle of traveling and singing in idyllic fashion. Never spending more than a few months in one place, much of his inspiration is drawn from those experiences on the road. His music contains a keen perspective on what it’s like to be on the move. His outlook is refreshing as he states, “Life isn’t meant to be spent in one place.” He reaffirms, “There’s so much out there to see and our time here is quite limited. I don’t want to waste a second of it.”
