The Downtown Eastside’s own Dalannah Gail Bowen has been music-making for over 45 years and for the last 15 years she has been a dynamic advocate for community; she has been an integral part of the DTES Heart of the City Festival since day one and she was recently honoured as ‘Master Blues Artist’ in the Blues Hall of Fame. Congratulations Dalannah!
The Festival has the honour of presenting an evening devoted to Dalannah Gail Bowen and her truly unique and powerful voice, described as ‘Billie Holiday meets Howlin’ Wolf.’ The musical line-up is stellar: Simon Kendall on piano, Rene Worst on bass, Chris Nordquist on drums, Dave Say on saxophone, Jim Salmon on percussion, with backup singers Jessi Nicholson, and Carlos Arias. For the second half of the evening, Owen Owen Owen is on bass. Join Dalannah and friends for an evening of jazz, blues and gospel; an evening not-to-be missed!
