Brookside Music Association Presents The Brenda Lewis & Margaret Stowe Vocal-Guitar Jazz Duo in Summer Concert Series at the New Midland Cultural Centre!
This Friday evening July 18, popular Guelph-based jazz vocalist Brenda Lewis and longtime music partner, Toronto guitar wiz Margaret Stowe return to Brookside Music Association’s acclaimed “Summer Serenade” Concert Series. A favourite from previous concert seasons, the pair will perform in the beautiful new Midland Cultural Centre on Georgian Bay.
Moving effortlessly between jazz standards and R&B, Lewis’ voice is described as “an elastic instrument – especially in songs that speak to the heart” (Rob Reid, Waterloo Record). Versatile musician Margaret Stowe is praised by the Globe and Mail as being “most impressive on guitar”.
Brenda is fresh from wowing a full house audience as the closing act in the June 2014 “1000 Islands Jazz & Blues Festival” and last October, she also performed a sold-out concert in Merrickville’s Jazz Fest. This dynamic duo have together captivated audiences in the Uptown Waterloo Jazz Festival, Guelph Jazz Festival, Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival, the prestigious McMichael Art Gallery’sconcert series and many more venues.  This fall, she and Stowe will be featured in one of Toronto’s premium intimate concert venues:”Musideum”.
