Travelling is the main theme behind Far & Near, the latest outstanding album from Guelph jazz singer Brenda Lewis. You'll get caught up in her magnificent, musical wanderings to New Orleans, the farm and beyond.
Brimming with exquisite covers of songs from Gil Scott-Heron, Jesse Winchester, Sarah McLachlan, Gayle Ackroyd and more, Brenda's melodic journey will take you into jazz, folk and country territories. Her wonderful voice will guide you through magical rhythmic landscapes.
Co-producer Margaret Stowe lends a hand on guitar and guest Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies) adds harmonica, mandolin, and percussion to a few numbers.
So grab a CD at one of her tremendous live shows or download it through iTunes and come aboard for an amazing trip.
