Event description

Description

Join singer/ songwriter Shirley Jackson and Jef Wirchenko on upright bass for an intimate evening of song at Petite Riviere Vineyards on May 26 from 7:00-9:00pm.

Shirley Jackson’s songs are laced with life experience and honesty that cannot be overlooked. The inspiration comes from a life force that has chosen to lend her the words to write the songs and arrange the music not only for a solo performance, joined with her son Jef Wirchenko on Acoustic bass, but also for the horn-powered jump, blues, swing band from Halifax; Shirley Jackson & Her Good Rockin’ Daddys.

Growing up in a small Alberta town, Shirley has been blazing trails for women in music for 35 years as a singer, songwriter, drummer, guitarist and an award- winning saxophone player. Toronto Maple Blues recipient for 'Horn Player' (2003), Toronto Maple Blues Award nominations in 2013 & 2018. Since moving to the Maritimes in 1988 she has been leading the Good Rockin' Daddys with four ECMA nominated CD's across the nation performing in theatres, headlining festival stages while inspiring young musicians in a full time teaching job as an instrumental band director.

Shirley's is a story of determination and belief that there is so much more, that anything is possible and to never be discouraged from being a dreamer.
