A Charlie Brown Christmas

Christmastime is here.

JAZZ
Tuesday, December 16, 2014
7:30 PM
$32 Adult \ $24 Child

You may not know Jerry Granelli by name, but you certainly know his music. In the mid-1960s, Jerry was the drummer for the Vince Guaraldi Trio, the trio that was called upon to score a heartwarming Christmas cartoon drawn by iconic Peanuts creator Charles Schultz.

Guaraldi’s music, an iconic soundtrack to the holiday season, has bridged the gap in generations for nearly half a century with its endearing charm, humour and innocence that reflects Charlie Brown’s search of the meaning of Christmas.

In this rare performance by Jerry Granelli, relive festive childhood memories with timeless classics from A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Jerry has invited the Youth Choir from the St. Albert Youth Musical Association  to join him on stage for a few magical numbers.

Combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man, Marc Cohn has solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters. Best known for his Grammy-winning hit Walking in Memphis, Cohn’s reputation as a natural storyteller, balancing the exuberant with the poignant, is highly regarded.

Ending a nearly ten-year absence from the studio, Marc Cohn released Join the Parade, one of his most critically-acclaimed records. His latest album, Listening Booth: 1970 ultimately brought Cohn back to where he began – writing songs that speak so eloquently about the transformative, healing power of music.

Carpenter turned songwriter David Francey sings the stories of real people and real places. As one of Canada’s most revered folk poets and singers, David’s openhearted lyricism and honesty has earned the musician multiple Juno Awards and top honours in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

The troubadour’s keen eye for the heart of the matter packs an emotional punch in his beautifully crafted and superbly played music.
