Comments Off on Jazz vocal jam w. Sue Ramsay Trio, … Apr 14, May 12

Sue_RamsaySecond Thursdays: Feb 11, Mar 10, April 14, May 12, 2016 (last one for the season), at 8 pm, $10 /$5. Jazz vocalist Sue Ramsay hosts a jazz vocal jam, backed by Bob Shields on guitar and Clark Johnston on stand-up bass, with Adam Fielding on drums. With some storytelling in the mix. Sue says: “I want to create an environment where singers can do their thing and promote whatever they’re working on.  And I get to gig once a month to try out new material and jam a wee bit with my trio. I have often found being a singer is a lonely road. The path is not always clear but so much easier with a network of friends around.”  http://www.suzanne-ramsay.com/ .
