KELP WELCOMES MEASHA! /February 06, 2012
Monday night in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Juno award-winning and Grammy-nominated singer Measha Brueggergosman takes to the stage at the historic Seahorse Tavern to record a brand new musical offering. Over three intimate evenings (and two concerts later this week in her hometown of Fredericton, New Brunswick at the Cedar Tree Cafe), audiences will enjoy an eclectic mix of some of the soprano’s favorite songs including selections from the Canadian Songbook, Spanish canciones, Acadian folksongs and gospel hymns. Captured live, a recording titled I’ve Got A Crush On You will be released April 17 via Kelp Records. Special guests who are featured on the new recording will be announced next month.
Musical director Aaron Davis (piano) has brought together an overwhelmingly talented group of musicians for these performances including Robert Piltch (guitar), Marty Melanson (bass), John Johnson (woodwinds), Chris Mitchell (woodwinds) and Dave Burton (drums).
Soprano Measha Brueggergosman is one of the most magnificent performers and vibrant personalities of the day. She has garnered worldwide acclaim as much for her innate musicianship and voluptuous voice as for her incomparable stage presence. More than 3 billion people witnessed her epic performance at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Olympic Games. Ms. Brueggergosman is also a celebrity judge for the television series Canada’s Got Talent which premieres in March on Citytv.
