Alejandro Escovedo and Shelby Lynne:  An Evening of Stories and Songs

  Alejandro Escovedo and Shelby Lynne have no shortage of tales to tell. A devout rock 'n' roller who draws from a range of musical styles, Rolling Stone favourite Escovedo has weathered heartbreak, illness and life on the road to build up an impressive 35-year career in music. Lynne, a native of rural Alabama, secured success on her own terms with the 2000 Grammy Award-winning phenomenon I Am Shelby Lynne and has continued to follow her own beat, most recently releasing the acclaimed Revelation Road on her own Everso Records label and delighting fans across the globe.

B.B. King

   A B.B. King show is a grand event. The intimate, casual and light-hearted nature of his shows belies the tremendous discipline, dedication and history behind them. It's easy to see why, 66 years into his career, the guitarist and singer is worshipped by musicians the world over, regardless of genre. Don't miss this living legend —and his famous guitar, Lucille— when he returns to Massey Hall.

Emm Gryner w/ Erika & Sara

Matt Dusk w/ Kellylee Evans & Eleanor McCain

   Great Canadian crooner Matt Dusk headlines a toe-tapping show at Winter Garden Theatre in the company of jazz and soul powerhouse vocalist Kellylee Evans and soprano Eleanor McCain. Dusk is equally at home singing swing, pop or jazz and equally happy to front a symphony, a big band or his quintet. Of late, he's gone back to an early love: 1950s jazz star Chet Baker, whose work forms the centrepiece of Dusk's terrific new album, My Funny Valentine.

Oct. 25 @ 8:00 PM   Winter Garden Theatre, 187 Yonge St. (across from the Eaton Centre)  |   Tickets: $30 - $50   Phone: 416 872-4255  or
