Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Porkka/Philp Duo

October 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Karen Porkka, Vocals
Jamie Philp, Guitar


Karen Porkka is an Edmonton based singer, multi-instrumentalist and composer whose music is influenced by sounds from all around the world. She is particularly inspired by improvisation and spontaneous creations in her solo project PorkkaLoops and past co-creative projects The Parkers, d’Cana and Whirldish. Over the past couple decades Karen has been blessed to play often with her longtime friend and gifted guitarist Jamie Philp. Jamie is an icon of the Edmonton jazz scene playing with the “who’s who” as well as supporting the “up and coming” talented musicians of Edmonton. Both are excited to reunite as the Porkka/Philp Duo to play some jazz and original compositions for the Tuesday Yardbird Suite online series.

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.

We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.

Curated by Edmonton musicians Nicolás Arnáez, Stephanie Urquhart, Peter Zawalski, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Tuesdays, Fridays, & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

If you missed some of broadcasts, or want to watch again, please visit our Youtube page.
