Roy Forbes

Saturday, October 5, 2013 – 7:00 pm

Forbes, formerly known as ‘Bim,” is a true Canadian troubadour, and we are thrilled he will be opening our 2013/14 season with a solo performance. “The writing is intelligent, insightful, lyrical and uncannily wise as to the ways of the human condition … there is a heart tugging honesty in Roy Forbes’ voice to which I, at least, never fail to respond. There is also the pure joy of singing.” Vancouver Sun.

Andrea Superstein

Sunday, May 25, 2014, 2:00 pm

Saucy, sultry, lyrical, timeless, Andrea Superstein sings jazz like she was born in the 40’s. The runaway hit of the 2012 Pender Harbour Jazz Festival. With a repertoire that covers decades of jazz, blues and popular classics, she’s Sarah Vaughan, meets Blossom Dearie, meets your favourite martini. It’s no wonder they call her Super.
