Outskirts of Eden: Jude Davison
@ The Capitol Theatre, Friday April 1, 8 p.m.
Proceeds from ticket sales of this performance will be used to aid in disaster relief for the Tsunami ravaged Japanese community of Onagawa.
In 2009 Jude Davison released a critically acclaimed concept album Circo de Teatro that chronicled the going’s-on of a Mexican circus and all its colorful characters.
Americana UK called it “a bold musical statement by an honest, progressive musician not afraid to venture off the beaten path in search of a creative muse,” while All Access Magazine in Los Angeles wrote that “Circo de Teatro is a spectacle of sound.”
The album was brought to life with a 10-piece band (some of Nelson’s finest musicians) with a stunning show at the Capitol Theatre in 2010 as well as performances at the Whatshan and Kaslo Jazz festivals.
It’s January 2011 and Jude has just released his 19th CD Outskirts of Eden. A sprawling two-disc set featuring 27 new songs that crisscross musical genres: Americana, Country, Rock, Dixieland, Mariachi, Folk and Blues.
Once again Jude and his band will take to the Capitol stage to recreate the new album’s songs live.
But there is more …
While the first act will feature songs from Outskirts of Eden the second act will reprise the costumes, theatrics and music of the Circo de Teatro show – that’s two shows in one.
Tickets: $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
