Upper North Side Canadian Songwriters' Circle for Sandy Relief ft. Sam Roberts, Marc Jordan & Sarah Slean
Can't wait for Canada Day (July 1) and the annual Canadian Songbook show at Joe's Pub? Well, mark March 21, 7 pm, on your calendar because that's the night that Canada once again inhabits the Pub. With all net proceeds going to Hurricane Sandy relief, and four of Canada's best songwriters gathering to take the stage for a one-night-only Songwriters' Circle of music and conversation, this will be one special evening. Montreal's electrifying Sam Roberts (Sam Roberts Band), who will bring his world-beating classic rock sensibility and melodic touch to the party; legendary songsmith Marc Jordan, who will sample from his rich catalogue, one that has furnished hits for Rod Stewart, Bette Midler, Diana Ross, The Manhattan Transfer, and Cher (not to mention himself); and Sarah Slean, whose piano-driven pop songwriting is -- according to Toronto's Globe and Mail -- marked by "compositional depth," fueled by "vocal heft," and is, in a word, "amazing." See you March 21, 7 pm, as Canada wears its musical heart on its sleeve for Sandy relief.
