Blue Spirits w/ Tiffinie Laing

Friday June 29 to Saturday June 30
@ The Carleton

Making their Carleton debut, Blue Spirits packs an extra punch for this one-off performance. The soulful fivesome will be joined by powerhouse vocalist Tiffinie Laing (Unidentified Funk Object) for a set of classic 90’s R&B hits. The concert will feature another special guest in saxophonist James Shaw (Goat Stories, Roxy & The Underground Soul Sound).

Blue Spirits sounds like a modern riff on Chet Baker. Fronted by singer/trumpeter Paul St-Amand, their sound blends blue-eyed soul, cool jazz, classic R&B, blues, and indie folk. Outstanding original tunes mingle with stunning takes on Bob Dylan, Nina Simone, Hank Williams, Eric Clapton, Amos Lee, Elvis Costello, and (of course) Baker. Last year the band released their debut album "Liquid Courage", which scored a NS Music Award nomination for Jazz Recording of the Year.

Blue Spirits is Paul St-Amand (trumpet, flugelhorn & vocals), Kyle Varley (keyboards & vocals), Ross Avey (guitar), Luke Arsenault (bass), and Charles Urich (drums).
