Anne Janelle Halifax and Truro Shows Pack “Mini-Music Festival” into Back-to-Back Shows November 28 & 29
[Halifax] Cellist turned songwriter Anne Janelle brings her signature blend of classically influenced folk/pop/jazz to the Maritimes this fall with shows in Halifax and Truro celebrating the release of her latest album, “I Didn’t Want to Break It” with an amazing lineup of supporting talent.
Join Anne Janelle for back-to-back shows, Tuesday, November 28 at The Carleton in Halifax, and Wednesday, November 29 at The Marigold Cultural Centre in Truro.
Anne is joined by special guests, Juno nominated musician and album producer, James Hill, award winning Ian Sherwood on saxophone, noted guitarist Jeff Torbert, and Symphony Nova Scotia violinist, Isabelle Fournier for the Halifax show.
For the Truro show, Anne is joined again by James Hill, along with Truro musician and educator Nick Fisher on saxophone, and members of the First Baptist Girls’ Choir.
Anne Janelle's latest music is striking for its big, bold, and confident sound, which follows up on the success of her earlier albums, including “True Love Don't Weep” (produced by James Hill, and winner of the Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Album of the Year), “Beauty Remains,” and “So Long at the Fair” (“inventive, entertaining, beautifully written and brilliantly performed” - R2 Magazine).
While calling Brookfield Nova Scotia home, the upcoming shows are a rare opportunity for Anne and husband/artistic collaborator, James Hill to play locally as national and international touring schedules keep the couple busy on the road. Recently, touring has become even more of a family affair with the addition of a new family member, their new son, who has enthusiastically taken to life on the road with his parents! These Nova Scotia shows will be a respite from touring for the family, and a welcome change to finding playgrounds and changing tables along the way.
CBC’s Bob Mersereau describes her music as "a crystal clear sound filled with warmth." “Absolutely brilliant,” declares Folk Diary, and Paul Symes of The Blacksheep Inn says Anne Janelle is “utterly world-class in every respect.”
