Jazz pianist and singer Beth Arrison returns to Char’s Landing for a Christmas concert this Saturday, Dec. 15 at 8 p.m.

“It’s another excellent, late-night event that makes beautiful use of a voice that sounds like vaporized honey, planting it in a garden of dreamy but slightly askew sonics,” says critic Mike Bell.

Arrison, born and raised in the prairies, is a jazz musician often heard on the CBC.

She currently performs with Grammy award winner and percussionist Israel Berriel.

Advance tickets are $10 at Rollin Art Centre (cash only).    Drop-ins add $3.

Doors open at 7 p.m.

Char’s Landing is located in the white church on Argyle Street at Fifth Avenue.

FMI: 250-730-1636.
