CANCELLED -- Reid Jamieson Band Plays Seattle Feb 20 -- CANCELLED
CANCELLED: We regret this concert has been cancelled. All tickets will be refunded.
The Reid Jamieson Band submitted their P2 Visa renewal application well in advance of the required time, but it remains unreviewed at the time of their border crossing. They were denied crossing as working artists, although they will be in the US as tourists. Regrettably, they therefore cannot perform this show.
Vancouver Canada's Reid Jamieson shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and magical way with melodies. A regular on the popular radio show Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (folk), he has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Sarah Harmer and various members of Blue Rodeo.
Reid can be found performing as an entertaining duo with his saucy wife and songwriting partner Carolyn Mill. Along with the Lennon win, this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest. They just released their first album singing together titled Juniper's Kitchen - it's a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac - and all about the songs.
Known for his compelling covers of everything from The Everly Brothers to Madonna, Reid just released his much anticipated collection - The Presley Sessions Revisited A musical love letter to the greats of the 50s era, including songs made popular by Elvis, Roy Orbison, The Platters and The Flamingos.
The amazing multi-instrumentalist and Seattleite, Joel Tepp, will sit in for this special show.
Doors open at 7:00PM for the 7:30 concert.
