Red Hot Jazz and Cool Blues
NEW START TIME: 6:30 p.m.
An RBG tradition continues with another stunning lineup of entertainment returning to the Hendrie Park stage. Enjoy a cold drink and BBQ and get set for some award-winning jazz and blues musicians in our lovely garden setting.
Join us for the CLOSING PERFORMANCE of our 2017 Garden Music Night series, with some blues from Samantha Martin and Delta Sugar:
“The first thing that hits you is the voice. Samantha Martin’s is a force of nature, one of those voices that grabs you by the throat while causing the hairs on the back of your neck to tingle. The likes of her friend Serena Ryder and Janis Joplin come to mind as reference points." – Kerry Doole, Exclaim!
Bubbling up from the cauldron of roots Americana music, Samantha Martin is an artist of extraordinary power, gravitas and deep-seated emotion. On first listen, one is immediately struck by the awesome presence and sheer magnitude of her other worldly voice. As a songwriter, she draws on black gospel and southern soul with a hint of roots country and sixties pop while her lyrics suggest an old soul with wisdom beyond her years. In combination with what she likes to term her “co-vocalists” (as opposed to “backup vocalists”), Sherie Marshall and Stacie Tabb, the vocal blend Delta Sugar produces is pure, unadulterated neuron-tingling magic where the sum is even richer than the already soul-melting parts. Add to that, guitarist Mikey McCallum’s Delta-inspired and mystery-inflected guitar lines.
