Jazz Night: Heather Bambrick with Michael Shand, Ross MacIntyre, Chase Sanborn, Mark Kelso, August 16
Juno-nominated singer Heather Bambrick’s performances have been described as what happens when “Carol Burnett meets Ella Fitzgerald at a Newfoundland kitchen party.” Her shows have it all, with music ranging from Jazz standards and Canadian pop hits, to Newfoundland folk music and sitcom theme songs. Add to that side-splitting stories and some of the best musicians in the country and it adds up to an outstanding show, delivered with warmth, wit, and pure Newfoundland charm!
Heather and her world-class quartet will be performing Friday, August 16, 7:30pm at the Knox Presbyterian Church, 345 Durham St., Kincardine.
Tickets $25, available through the Box Office and outlets listed on the right.
