LionsBayHouseConcerts: Laila Biali: Great Canadian Songbook Tour

"She is an exciting and unique talent, and I admire her greatly." - Sting

Award-winning Canadian pianist, vocalist and songwriter Laila Biali is Jazz Hot, with a contemporary twist. One minute Biali is soaring over a bluesy storm of hard-charging keyboard riffs, the next she is pouring out her soul on an impassioned ballad. She's sizzled with Grammy winners Sting. Chris Botti. Paula Cole. Suzanne Vega. She is also the new CBC host of Saturday Night Jazz. Laila Biali will be coming as a trio with friends Adam Thomas (bass/vocals) and Joel Fountain (drums/vocals), and in celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary will be covering The Great Canadian Songbook. Count on hearing songs by Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Feist, Sarah McLachlan, Bruce Cockburn, Daniel Lanois, k.d. Lang, Ron Sexsmith, Jane Siberry, Marc Jordan, Ruth Lowe, and Neil Young… done jazz-style. She will also perform original songs and unique arrangements of pop hits by David Bowie and more! You can listen to Laila’s cover of the Neil Young classic, Heart of Gold and watch Laila cover David Bowie's hit, Let's Dance, live

This will be an incredible evening and is even more special as she is not making a Vancouver appearance, preferring instead to play here in Lions Bay. SO don't miss out! The setting is a remarkable private home. Seats are limited, so all seats are best seats. NOTE: There will be photography & videography at this event.
