Frankie's Jazz Club 08:00 pm

As it turns out, there is nearly an endless supply of cute Blossom Dearie tunes for this band to revive!  Sarah Kennedy is returning to Frankie’s for another night as the notoriously cute, Blossom Dearie.  You will be delighted and surprised at the accuracy of Sarah’s Blossom impression: you’re allowed to giggle.  Blossom Dearie was a Brooklyn born jazz singer, pianist and composer, who became famous for a girlish and mousy voice as well as a unique sense of time and phrasing. The music abounds with satire, lyrical wit, and adorable Tin Pan Alley tune arrangements. Sarah Kennedy is joined by some of Vancouver’s finest musicians to bring to life Blossom’s legacy.  Tickets $15 added to cheque.  Reservations recommended via Frankie’s Jazz Club
