Tammy Fassaert joins the stellar musical lineup playing the Sisters’ Cafe at St. Joseph’s General Hospital.

By day, Fassaert works in the laboratory at St. Joe’s. She also is internationally esteemed for her powerful, passionate, unadorned singing style, in the bluegrass/Americana/roots and old country genres. She has performed on stages throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

The concert plays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 18 in the Sisters’ Cafe at the hospital.

The ubiquitous Helen Austin opens the concert at 11 a.m. with her Juno Award winning music.

Fassaert will play her bass along with friends Karen and Larry Baille at noon, followed at 1 p.m. by the Canadian Military Wives Choir. Julie Nichol plays clarinet at 2 p.m.

The grand finale begins at 3 p.m. with celebrated cellist, Helena Jung, performing with one of her students.

The musicians are generously donating their talent to bring Christmas cheer and appreciation to staff, physicians and volunteers at St. Joseph’s General Hospital.

The public is welcome to attend this free concert.
