Selkirk College Presents Canadian Jazz Innovator Elizabeth Shepherd
Montreal-based jazz musician Elizabeth Shepherd will be kicking off her latest tour at Nelson’s Shambhala Music & Performance Hall where she will be joined on stage by Selkirk College students.
The velvety-voiced pianist arrived on the international scene in 2006 when her debut album Start To Move was voted one of the top jazz albums of the year by the listeners of the influential Gilles Peterson Show on BBC Radio Worldwide. Since then, the soul-jazz innovator has established herself as one of the most alluring and imaginative artists on the scene today.
Four-time Juno Award nominee and acclaimed jazz musician Elizabeth Shepherd will be at the Shambhala Music & Performance Hall on November 16 at 7:30 p.m. where she will kick off her B.C. tour.
Joining Shepherd on her tour of British Columbia is guitar wizard and long-time collaborator, Michael Occhipinti. Rounding out the band will be Scott Kemp on bass, John Day on trumpet, and local favourite Tony Ferraro on drums. For the Nelson performance, second-year Selkirk College Contemporary Music & Technology Program vocal major students will join Shepherd on stage.
Shepherd will be in Nelson on November 16 where she will be giving a pair of clinics for students in the Selkirk College Contemporary Music & Technology Program and in the evening take the stage at the venue on Tenth Street Campus. Tickets for the November 16 show will be available at the door ($15 and $10 students/seniors). The performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
