Many-musician lineup

comment

The show is simply entitled Doin’ it for a Song. However, continuing on with the famous phrase Doin’ it for a Song and Dance might be more appropriate with the juggling of so many wide-reaching musicians under one playbill.

Along with children-entertainer Norman Foote and Linda Kidder’s album release of Close to Bliss, the duo will be joined by fellow musicians Black Swade, Emily, Richard Trann, Cam Salay, Lesley Alexander and John Ellis Sunday, Nov. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Brackendale Art Gallery (BAG).

Kidder, a Juno nominee, premieres her album, a combination of jazz, blues and roots, at the multi-musician show. Singing alongside greats is nothing new for the angel-voice singer/songwriter. Her recording credits include Rita MacNeil, Gary Fjellgaard, Bon Jovi and Susan Crowe, to name a few.

While Foote is most famous for his kiddie-oriented shows: One Thousand Pennies won the 2002 West Coast Music Award, 2002 Parents’ Choice Silver Award and a Children’s Music Web Award. He has also recorded songs for Disney Records, Shari Lewis and CBC’s syndicated TV show, Scoop and Doozie. However, after 20 years of his laugh-out-loud shows, his music has matured to an eclectic mix of country, reggae and blues.

Tickets for the talent-packed show are $14 for adults, $12 for seniors and students. Advanced tickets can be purchased at BAG or Mostly Books in Squamish.
