Sabrina Weeks #Ottawa
Yesterday I finally had the chance to catch two sets by Sabrina Weeks and Mike Hilliard playing at Atomic Rooster and I was not disappointed. Sabrina has a fantastic and powerful voice and she used it to full effect on a range of music that included her own songs as well as blues standards such as Big Mama’s Hound dog. With all the musical choices yesterday (JW-Jones had his CD release party at the Rainbow and Emilie-Claire Barlow was playing Centrepoint with the TSO), I’m glad I chose to see Sabrina. A dose of Blues and Swing definitely brought me out of my funk and was well appreciated and our chat in between the first two sets provoved that she’s not just a great performer, she is also a great person. Hopefully she’ll make it back to Ottawa next summer during her annual tour.
Next up for me will be Guy Belanger, Steve Strongman and Monkeyjunk at the Museum of History next Saturday, October 4.
