Peggy Lee Band
Granville Island Marquee Series
Buy Stream Ticket
Cellist/composer Peggy Lee is a giant in Vancouver’s creative music scene. Equally adept in way-out free improv, the classical rigor of her work with the VSO, and the arcing melodic texturing of her detailed, emotionally deep compositions, Lee exudes mastery in quietude and in fire. Premiering new music alongside selections from its rich back catalogue, this all-star band inhabits a sound world where “melodies slide in and out of abstraction; skewed marches butt up against folk songs; chamber music niceties crumble under the assault of funk and psychedelia.” (Georgia Straight)
This concert is presented with the support of Arlene James, in honour of the memory of Ralph and Barbara James, her parents, who both loved jazz.
