Hello all! Coming up is the first-ever, "Seattle Women in Jazz Festival"!

I will be singing on the opening night of the festival, Friday April 26th, with musicians Troy Chapman on guitar and Rick Leppanen on upright bass. It's an earlier start than most jazz gigs, 7pm, but doesn't that make it all the more family-friendly?

I will be sharing the billing with the wonderful Leah Natale who recently won the 2013 Seattle/Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist of the year competition.

This inaugural festival has been an enormous undertaking on the part of Jessica Davis. She and I traveled to Vancouver B.C. last Friday and had a great time being interviewed by Vancouver B.C.'s CFRO "A-Trane" host, Nou Dadoun for three hours. I've also recently been interviewed by Seattle's "City Living" magazine and Jazz Historian, Elaine M. Hayes, former editor of Earshot Jazz. She will be posting our interview on Thursday April 18th at http://elainemhayes.com/lady-be-bop/. And, with any luck, I will also have some time with John Gilbreath on the air before our April 26th gig.

So, please, get your tickets now and help support this brand new festival! Go to www.seattlewomeninjazz.com, click on the tab to the right of my picture for Brown Paper Tickets and come on out to hear some great music on Friday April 26th! And better yet, go to the whole festival and help put Seattle on the map as a destination place for women in jazz!
