It's the Holidays...and award-wining, world-jazz group VERONNEAU are back to celebrate. Led by multilingual, Quebecoise vocalist Lynn Veronneau, the band re-opened Blues Alley over 4 nights in September 2021, after nearly two years of pandemic closure. Now they're back to celebrate the Holidays and their upcoming Live at Blues Alley album release.
"Global", "Jazzy", "Retro", "Original"... VERONNEAU is all of the above. The acoustic, multilingual, world-jazz sound of the band, fronted by French Canadian vocalist Lynn Veronneau and her English husband guitarist Ken Avis, has been delighting audiences on-stage, and on-line with their three Top 10 charting albums.
VERONNEAU have toured Europe, the USA and Canada, appearing live on BBC radio, festival stages, and clubs, and venues such as Kennedy Center, Strathmore, Blues Alley, Bonafide, The Hamilton, DC Jazz Fest and many more.
