Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Louise Dawson

Louise Dawson – Vocals

Edmonton’s Louise Dawson, whose influences from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s soul, R&B, and Jazz scene awoke her passion for singing. Studying at Grant MacEwan then McGill University helped shape her vocal abilities to move between the styles of pop, classical, R&B and Jazz. Her talents and experience have brought her to many cities, performing in night clubs and festivals throughout Canada and Europe. She is currently a music teacher in Edmonton, Alberta where she teaches and directs both Concert band, Jazz band and Jazz choir.
In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
For the remainder of the Yardbird Suite’s regular season, from Friday, May 1 until early June, watch jazz musicians on Yardbird Suite’s Facebook page at facebook.com/YardbirdSuite perform live from isolation.
Curated by Edmonton vocalist Mallory Chipman, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
The Yardbird Suite Virtual Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
