Vocal and Piano Power Light Up Hermann’s

April 24, 2009

Two stellar, not-to-be-missed acts perform at Hermann’s this weekend in Victoria.anneschaeferwaitr1

Vocalist/instrumentalist Anne Schaefer appears tonight with Emily Braden (vocals and kazoo), Brooke Maxwell (also vocals and kazoo), Kelby MacNayr (drums), and Sean Drabitt (bass) in a special presentation of new material from her in-production-CD, The Waiting Room.

And Juno-award winner Hugh Fraser turns up the piano power Saturday piano-trio-poster-1night when he appears with Ken Lister on bass and Josh Dixon on drums in a special piano trio performance that will feature the works of Duke Ellington, McCoy Tyner, Red Garland, Thelonius Monk and Dave Brubeck.

Schaefer is one of the most original voices on the scene today. Her 2005 CD Twelve Easy Pieces won critical acclaim across the country, and the musicians she’s appearing with are all major acts in their own right.

Fraser’s dynamic, percussive approach to the keys always excites audiences, and the opportunity to see him closeup in the intimate Hermann’s setting is a guaranteed musical pleasure and adventure.

Both shows get underway at 8pm with tickets available at the door ($10, $15).
