From the Tantramarsh Blues Society (the other TBS):

We have two excellent shows lined up for you in the coming weeks:

On March 21, 2007, at 8:00 p.m., the Catbird Jazz Society, in co-operation with the Marshlands Inn, is offering another of its jazz and dessert concerts, this time featuring Eliana Cuevas.

The explosion of jazz and world music in Canada in the last decade has given audiences access to a rich variety of great music from many countries and cultures.

Eliana Cuevas is the stellar singer from Latin America for whom we have been searching to round out that picture. The intimate, friendly and resonant environment of the Marshlands Inn Dining Room is the ideal venue for such a performer.

Eliana Cuevas studied music in Venezuela and history at the University of Toronto. Continuing her musical studies in Canada, she came to sing with a variety of pop, Latin-jazz, reggae, salsa, Brazilian & flamenco ensembles.

She released her first recording as leader of her own ensemble in 2002, and in 2004 issued a second album, entitled Ventura. Next month she is scheduled to begin to record the next CD. Ms Cueva’s work is characterized by uplifting melodies, haunting and personal lyrics, jazz harmonies and rhythms from Venezuela, Cuba, Brazil, Peru, and jazz itself. She sings in Spanish, Portuguese, and English.

Ms Cuevas has performed all across Canada, at such venues as the Lula Lounge, the Rex Hotel Jazz and Blues Bar, the Top O’ The Senator, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Victoria Jazz Festival, the Vancouver Jazz Festival, the Yukon Storytelling Festival, the Comox Valley Music Festival, the Atlantic Jazz Festival, the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, the Small World Music Festival, the Festival des Rythmes du Monde, several folk festivals and the “Global Divas” concert organized by Jane Bunnett.

She has also performed internationally, in Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin and her native Venezuela. Her collaborators are all outstanding musicians, as well, and we anticipate a fantastic evening of musical and gustatory pleasure!

This event is sponsored by Mount Allison University’s Marjorie Young Bell Fine Arts and Music Fund.

On Friday, April 13th, 9 p.m. at George's Roadhouse, TBS presents the Handy/Blues Award-winning (Paul) Rishell and (Annie) Raines Blues Band from Boston.

Paul and Annie have won the best country blues album award at the Handy (now called the Blues) Awards for their acoustic effort, Going to the Country.

They will be in town with an excellent backing band in support of a new album, so look forward to a combination of great acoustic and electric blues.
