Old Soul Rebel + JB The First Lady
GRANVILLE ISLAND JAZZ
OLD SOUL REBEL
A powerhouse duo that puts a new shine on Southern-tinged blues rock, Old Soul Rebel was named one of Canada’s best new bands by CBC Radio. Inspired by their Black and First Nations cultures, Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Lola Whyte’s revelatory collaboration is vivid, upbeat, and compellingly gritty.
Presented in association with Full Circle: First Nations Performance

Presented in association with Full Circle: First Nations Performance.
