Another Great Evening at the St. Lawrence Stage – Layah Jane and Annabelle Chvostek – Morrisburg Ontario – March 12, 2011 by Reg Coffey

Morrisburg ON – This was the second concert that I have attended at the St. Lawrence Stage in Morrisburg and I am still impressed with the quality of the venue and the selection of artists. I bought two more CD’s. Actually this was the third in the series of 5 but I missed the first one because I was too chicken to go out in a snow storm.

Last night the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage featured another pair of great Canadian singer/songwriters, Layah Jane and Annabelle Chvostek.  Layah Jane took the stage first with her producer and accompanist Oliver Johnson. I am once again going to borrow words from the St. Lawrence Stage’s program where they say that Layah Jane’s voice is “both sweet and rich and a delicious, deep-groove approach”.

I don’t know who writes that stuff but they are good, and I agree with them 100%. On top of Layah’s great talent there was Oliver Johnson who provided fantastic guitar work and perfect subtle harmony. www.layahjane.com

Annabelle Chvostek and her band took the stage after the break and continued a great evening with their performance.  To quote the program again,  Annabelle has “gorgeous vocals and deft guitar playing has attracted awards and accolades as both a solo performer and as a member for several years with the Wailin’ Jennys”. I don’t really have to add to that except that, once again, I whole heartedly agree. Her band consisted of Tony Spina on drums, Jérémie Jones on bass and guitarist and blue ukulele player David Celia. You gotta love a band with a standup base and a blue ukulele. www.annabelle.org

Next month the St. Lawrence Stage will feature Nancy Beaudette, Chris MacLean and Peggy White. The concert is on Saturday April 9th, 2011 at 7:00 pm. I will be there and I hope you will too.
