The Friends of the Mississippi Mills Public Library are hosting The Solstice Concert Series — a fundraising performance series in the main room of the Almonte Branch. The series is a variety pack of four shows, suitable for all tastes and offering single servings of jazz, folk, chamber, and a kids show. They take place around the summer and winter solstice dates (mid-December and mid-June) as well as the spring and autumnal equinoxes (mid-March and mid-September).
The inaugural concert features three Almonte-based musicians who will be serving up a collection of much-loved jazz standards and selections from the Great American Songbook, alongside a tantalizing mix of poetic and painterly original songs by Jen Noxon.
Jen Noxon and The Brindled Cats (Brendan Gawn on acoustic bass and Rob McMurray on guitar) have each played in various collaborative configurations over the years. Jennifer Noxon (vocals and percussion) has two albums of original songs and a third on the way. Tinged with folk, jazz and blues, her songs portray an array of characters and events in an extraordinary way.
Together, the trio shares a love for well-crafted songs and melodies. This afternoon concert will be sure to get toes tapping, while giving the audience some opportunities to sing along.
