Makin’ Waves with jazz

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS | CAPE BRETON -

The third in­stal­ment of the Makin’ Waves con­cert se­ries will take to the stage Thurs­day at Went­worth Park.

Renowned Syd­ney jazz mu­si­cian Joe Waye and his trio along with spe­cial guest Char­lotte Mac­Don­ald will join open­ing act and ris­ing star Breagh Mackin­non, also of Syd­ney.

Waye has stud­ied with Toronto jazz gui­tarist Art DeVil­liers and shared the stage with Juno award win­ning artists like Cape Bre­ton’s own Kirk Mac­Don­ald and Mike Mur­ley. His last re­lease “Back to Nor­mal” was is­sued in 2012.

Char­lotte Mac­Don­ald is an emerg­ing lo­cal jazz singer and was the win­ner of the 2013 Next Big Thing con­test.

Mackin­non is a cel­e­brated artist with a unique voice and back­ground as a jazz mu­si­cian. An ECMA nom­i­nee in 2012 for her de­but al­bum “Where the Days Went,” Mackin­non has since been tour­ing Canada both as a solo per­former and along­side Dy­lan Guthro and Car­leton Stone as Port Cities.

The Cape Bre­ton Mu­sic In­dus­try Co­op­er­a­tive and the Cape Bre­ton Re­gional Mu­nic­i­pal­ity recre­ation depart­ment are co-spon­sors for the event and with more than 2,000 peo­ple at­tend­ing the first two shows, both groups couldn’t be hap­pier with at­ten­dance.

The con­cert will run from 6-8 p.m. Thurs­day and ad­mis­sion is free.
