Grano at the Garden

Armi Grano will play at Anderton Gardens on Sunday.




Georgia Straight Jazz Society and the Anderton Therapeutic Garden Society will be presenting their second of three summer afternoon concerts on Aug. 10 at Anderton Gardens in Comox, when Vancouver songstress Armi Grano will be backed by three of our region’s finest jazz musicians: Mike Eddy on piano; John Hyde on bass, and Bill Street on drums. Showtime is at 2 p.m.

Grano is one of Vancouver’s premier jazz song stylists and is considered one of the finest jazz vocalists on the contemporary jazz music scene today.

Her distinct style, smooth clear voice and genuine engaging personality has attracted fans from all over the world with the release of her six albums.

Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, Astrud Gilberto and Anita O’Day, which have allowed her to develop her own blend of music featuring an exciting mix of Latin, pop, swing and jazz influences.

This is a rare Vancouver Island appearance for Grano, who is recently returned from a seven-month stint in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where she owns the restaurant and jazz lounge “Encore.” (In her own words: “I bought my own gig!”).

She is performing only a limited number of shows in Vancouver before heading back to Mexico in October.

Mark your calendar; this is your opportunity to meet friends, sit back with a picnic and enjoy great live music in a wonderful garden setting, and to tour the gardens before or after the show.

Refreshments will be on sale at the venue.

Ample parking will be available.

Look for the “Music Today” sign on the roadside, and people offering parking assistance when you pull into the parking area at Anderton Nursery at 2012 Anderton Road. Gates open at 1 p.m. and will remain open until 5 p.m.

Admission is $10. Children under 14 are free.
