Mon­day Mu­sic wel­comes back Niki Venoit

The News (New Glasgow) - - ARTS -

Mon­day Mu­sic in Alma’s fall monthly con­cert se­ries con­tin­ues Nov. 5 with a Nov. 5 con­cert fea­tur­ing a busy lo­cal mu­si­cian.

Niki Venoit was on the stage in Alma last Au­gust when she charmed the au­di­ence with her big voice, en­ergy and ob­vi­ous love of mu­sic.

She has cer­tainly spent the year shar­ing that love of mu­sic — singing on the P.E.I. ferry, in lo­cal bars and res­tau­rants, at pri­vate events, wed­dings and, most re­cently, she has been per­form­ing with the Pink Floyd Trib­ute Band: Mo­men­tary Lapse with per­for­mances in Pic­tou County a hand­ful of times, but also on the road to places such as Truro, Yar­mouth, Monc­ton, Liver­pool and soon in the Hal­i­fax area.

Dur­ing her per­for­mances, she presents a large va­ri­ety of gen­res with her own spin on them. She tends to play a lot of up­beat songs but also likes to throw in a few slower, heart­felt ones as well to change it up. Some of her per­sonal

favourites are the “oldies” — clas­sics from the 1970s.

When she was asked what the au­di­ence can ex­pect, Venoit said, “At the con­cert, the au­di­ence can ex­pect a to­tal acous­tic show, as I am choos­ing to go ‘un­plugged’ as I did last time. I en­joy fill­ing the room with the sound of my gui­tar and voice stripped of mi­cro­phones and speak­ers. This is very rare for me as most venues re­quire these things but, I espe­cially love this venue for that rea­son — I do not need the bells and whis­tles! I will also be invit­ing a cou­ple of spe­cial guests to join me for some songs, and hope to in­volve the au­di­ence in some sing-alongs.”

CON­TRIB­UTED

Niki Venoit will be per­form­ing in Alma on Nov. 5.
