Raw, Authentic, Beautiful

 

Fresh from his Off-Broadway debut, Keith Alessi shares his inspirational true story of leaving the corporate world behind to follow his true passion – playing the banjo! When facing a battle with cancer, his lifelong dream becomes the key to saving his life. Told through humour and music, this is an uplifting story of challenge, triumph, and the power of positivity.
