 Molly Johnson – Saturday, April 17 - 8 p.m.

Molly Johnson’s voice evokes the aura of dark, smoky nightclubs of a bygone era.  Like the woman behind it, it is a voice filled with humour, joy, surprise, sassiness, and of course, love.  Known as one of Canada’s greatest voices, this award-winning jazz vocalist is a mother, singer/songwriter, artist and philanthropist, who just released her highly anticipated new album, “Meaning to Tell Ya”.  It’s much more than jazz…it’s funk, it’s soul, it’s groove!
