Nelson-based vocalist Laura Landsberg is spreading her latest offering of wonderfully reinvented classics across the Kootenay this spring backed by a band of amazing musicians sure to delight.

Landsberg released A Simple Twist earlier this year and has been looking forward to bringing her take on classics from Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin and more on the road. Take one part rock ‘n’ roll, one part jazz, and one part country, shake it up with a gorgeous and dynamic voice and that’s what audiences are in for.

“There’s nothing better than touring with a band of respected musicians with an album that people will easily find a connection to,” says Landsberg. “I had such a wonderful time recording these incredible songs in a new way. I can’t wait to perform them in front of a live audience.”

She covers songs by Van Morrison, CCR, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Prince and more.

Helping bring A Simple Twist to life on this leg of the tour will be, Paul Landsberg (guitar), Rob Fahie (bass), and Tony Ferraro (drums), and special Guest Ben Beveridge on (Violin, Mandolin, and Slide Guitar).

“Getting to play with these talented musicians is a gift,” says Landsberg. “It’s going to be a treat to play live with such a great group.”

Landsberg leads a busy life as a mother to six children, a Selkirk College Contemporary Music & Technology instructor, and a jazz singer. She has been performing her unique blend of jazz, blues, and gospel music throughout North America for more than 35 years. As well as leading her own groups, she has performed with Chucho Valdez, The Brubeck Brothers, Neil Swainson, Hugh Fraser and VEJI, and the Spokane Jazz Orchestra.

The “A Simple Twist” tour is supported by Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.

Catch Landsberg at the Revelstoke Jazz Club, inside the Selkirk Room at the Regent Hotel on Friday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m.
