Guelph vocalist Brenda Lewis performing at festival

ORANGEVILLE - Guelph jazz vocalist Brenda Lewis will be performing twice at this weekend’s Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival.

Lewis will perform at the brand new Edge Wine Bar and Grille, located in Headwaters Racquet Club, as part of the festival’s “In the Clubs” series.

On June 3 from 4 to 7pm she will be accompanied by Toronto jazz guitar player Margaret Stowe, and on June 4 from 8:30 to 11:30pm  Guelph pianist John Zadro will joinLewis.

 Lewis’ new CD Jazzlike, is currently receiving airplay on CBC Radio. In The Green Man Review, David Kidney described her vocals as “torch singing of the highest standard” and the CD as “a jumping jazz album that should satisfy anyone who’s been missing Rosemary Clooney.”

Lewis is no stranger to Orangeville audiences, having performed in the Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival most years since it began.

She also led the house band for Millcroft Inn’s New Year’s Eve parties for six years. Over the past year, she was a featured artist in nearby Halton Museum’s Fireside Jazz Concert Series and Georgetown’s Noon Hour Jazz Concert Series.

 There is no admission for Lewis’ two shows, and the Edge’s outdoor patio is now open for the summer. The Edge Wine Bar and Grille  is located at 205467 Dufferin Road 109, RR2, Orangeville (at the corner of Highway 9 and Riddell Road, behind Greenwood Construction). It may be a good idea to phone ahead to reserve a spot (519-940-1111).

The 9th annual Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival runs June 2 to 5 at various venues throughout the town.

Performers on the “Broadway Garden” main stage will include Downchild Blues Band and Paul James Band.
