Classic with a simple twist

Accomplished vocalist living in Nelson will perform with the help of her band of jazz musicians tonight in the Gallery

Laura Landsberg,  accomplished vocalist living in Nelson will perform with the help of her band of jazz musicians tonight in the Gallery.

Landsberg is excited to play in Rossland and says “it is a beautiful place, I loved it there”, and the Gallery will be an exciting new venue. “It is a beautiful space”, she added.

Lansberg used to play at the Firehall and remembers Rossland as having “a very appreciative audience”.

The show is part of a tour that got realized with help of a tour grant from Columbia Basin Trust and Kootenay Columbia Cultural Alliance. She played in Kaslo and Silverton before the show in Rossland. The tour is to promote her latest album called A Simple Twist where Landsberg branched out from her normal comfort zone to celebrate the music from her upbringing.

She is flirting with great artists like Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin and Van Morrison and performs their songs in a completely different way. Landsberg and her band have a strong foundation in jazz standard so she promises a night of creativity and improvisation. “It will be jazzy, country, rootsy and popsy” she laughs.

Her music is accessible to a wide audience and she explains her music as “chill” and “hard to set a label on”, something that has to be heard.

Two of her band members are flown in from Vancouver but she is a local talent. She grew up in the Slocan Valley, is a contemporary music and technology instructor at Selkirk College and just saw her sixth daughter graduate in the area.

The opening act is the talented singer/songwriter Ja.m.es La.m.b from Nelson who Landsberg is happy to work with. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $15 at the door.

Landsberg is excited to play in Rossland and meeting “the warm and friendly people” who live here. She wraps up by saying “I think it will be a very good night!”.
