River Run Centre presents Emilie-Claire Barlow, DK Ibomeka, and Lori Cullen in a unique evening of jazz vocals.
The triple headliner performance features three of the best new and distinctive voices in Canada – with sounds that blend jazz, blues, and soul.
The show is this Saturday at 8pm.
Performance headliner and Juno-nominated jazz vocalist Barlow, has been described as Canada’s incomparable vocal-jazz jewel. Her energetic live performances and recordings thrill sold-out audiences from Tokyo to Montreal.
At 6-feet 7-inches, Ibomeka (pronounced ee-bo-MECK-eh) has a towering stage presence and a voice to match. Insiders call Ibomeka one of the best new voices in years, with a sound that blends a mix of jazz, a touch of blues, and a distinct flavouring of soul. He last appeared in Guelph as part of River Run Centre’s 10th anniversary gala celebration in 2007, and his performance was the smash hit of the evening.
He recently received a Canadian Smooth Jazz awards nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year as well as a national jazz award nomination in the best male vocal category.
Opening the performance will be Cullen, in a return to Guelph after appearing at the Hillside Festival in 2006. Her skill as a songwriter and collaborator with renowned folk and jazz performers places her comfortably in venues and festivals with a singer songwriter focus. Her album, Calling for Rain, received a Juno nomination for best jazz vocal.
