The first concert in an annual performing arts series features a renowned jazz musician whose performance includes songs by several other iconic Canadian artists.

Laila Biali, an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist, is known to combine traditional jazz with contemporary pop music on her albums in an effortless and complementary fashion. Biali performs at the Norman Ritchie Community Centre on Oct. 21 starting at 8 p.m.

The show is the first of eight concerts in the Kindersley & District Arts Council’s 2017-18 Stars for Saskatchewan performing arts series. Biali has toured with Grammy winning artists including Paula Cole and Suzanne Vega, and she has headlined festivals and stages at venues such as Carnegie Hall. She has also worked with Sting.

Tickets for arts council concerts are available at Lela’s Music Centre, LaBelle Boutique, Integra Tire, online at www.ticketpro.ca and at the door if the show has not sold out. Single tickets are $26 for adults and $11 for students 12 years old and under.
