Trio to perform evening of harmonic music

Jennifer Louise Taylor brings two friends to Coffee House gig

We would like to extend apologies to our loyal folk fans for the abrupt cancellation of our March 5 concert, which was to have featured Ian Tamblyn. Unfortunately a scheduling conflict made it unavoidable. We hope to see Ian on his next visit to the West Coast.

This Saturday’s coffee house features the return of Jennifer Louise Taylor and this time she is bringing along Auto Jansz and Andrea June.

Jennifer Louise Taylor, Auto Jansz and Andrea June bring beautiful harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation and, most importantly, a sense of fun to the stage.  Together, Jennifer, Auto and Andrea create a sound that is spot on, with influences from the blues and ragtime to Celtic roots and everything in between

Jennifer Louise Taylor has performed her original music throughout B.C. and Canada and has been a guest studio musician on CBC radio. From the earliest planting of a lyrical seed, her songs develop into full-blown affairs, replete with harmonic layers and artful instrumentation. The Brentwood Bay Times writes that “(Jennifer) captures the west-coast feel in a way few others can.” From the acoustic roots tradition, her songs weave a tapestry, both fun and meaningful. Focus Magazine describes Jennifer Louise Taylor’s “velvety contralto” as “magical.”

Auto Jansz has toured festivals throughout Canada while performing with her popular roots band Barley Wik. With a blend of roots, ragtime and jazz, Auto delivers a brand of music that is simultaneously sophisticated and down-to-earth. She is a troubadour story-teller, weaving tales of bootlegging rattlesnake charmers to the life stories of madames in turn-of-the-century Winnipeg. Jason Valleau of Mountain View Music Festival describes Auto’s sound as “a wonderful blend of roots, folk and heartfelt lyrics.”

Andrea June performs original and cover songs from roots to jazz. She has performed in venues throughout B.C. from concert halls to remote mountain festivals. A former opera student, Andrea’s musical roots span show-tunes, classical art songs, jazz and pop, settling into a unique sound that is haunting, jazzy folk.

Through a shared love of all things musical, Jennifer, Auto and Andrea create a stage show that invites the audience to tune in and enjoy. With this group of musicians a diverse range of influences come together to create a magic that goes beyond the sum of their parts. These girls love what they do and in turn offer a warm invitation for the audience to join in on their musical voyage.

Please join us on Saturday, March 19 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Murray Road for an evening of harmonic music from these lovely ladies. Doors open at 7 p.m. with open stage at 7:30 and our feature at 9.
