Sue Newman lights up the stage at Pat’s House of Jazz with her high-energy interpretations of Broadway hits and gems from the Great American songbook.
The vivacious, multi-talented singer, dancer, producer, director and performance arts instructor from Salt Spring Island, studied jazz with Jay Clayton and Sheila Jordan at the Banff Centre.
She has choreographed or performed in musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof and The Music Man and has also performed with Hugh Fraser, Valdy, Randy Bachman, P.J. Perry and Bill Henderson.
Newman calls music “a truly a timeless joy to enjoy through the ages, with family and friends. We’ll bring you songs you may not have grown up with, but have somehow found a place in our collective memories.
“As well, there will be original tunes that speak the universal language of love, sorrow and grapefruit . . . well, they’re juicy, sweet and tart with emotion, with rhythms to make you want to tap your glass or get up and sashay on the floor.”
The performance is part of the Pat’s House of Jazz series that runs most Sundays at 2 p.m. at the Osborne Bay Pub in Crofton, a stone’s throw from the Salt Spring Island ferry terminal.
The last Sunday of the month Sunday Brunch is available from 10 am to 1 pm (reservations suggested 250 324 2245) followed by Jazz at 2 pm.
Table reservations can be made by calling the pub at (250) 324-2245.
Reserved tables will be held until 30 minutes before showtime.
