By now Edie Daponte needs little in the way of introduction, having appeared at the pub
several times over the years. Renowned for her great vocals and warm stage presence,
Edie is a perennial favorite and attracts a large crowd to her appearances.
Well known for her interpretation of the songs of chanteuse Edith Piaf, Edie mounted a
highly successful BC tour this summer selling out every show. This promises to be
another terrific show as Edie brings back a top notch band featuring Karl Roessingh on
piano, Damian Graham on drums and Joey Smith on guitar and bass.
Equally at home in an intimate lounge setting or an outdoor festival stage, Edie
Daponte has established a reputation in the music scene of Vancouver Island and
Western Canada as a dynamic and engaging performer. Edie brings passion,
playfulness and an evident love of performance to her live shows. Vancouver Island
Music Awards awarded Edie with “Jazz Recording of the Year” in 2017 for her
original song “Island Rain” and nominated her as “Vocalist of the Year” in 2016.
Edie’s original song ‘Ride the Wind’ was nominated in the Traditional category for
the 2017 International Portuguese Music Awards (IPMA). Emotive, playful and
passionate, Edie’s voice lends itself perfectly to a wide range of jazz standards and
originals seamlessly moving from Jazz to Bossa Nova and back again, switching
between English, Portuguese, Spanish and French numbers. Edie released 2 new
studio albums in 2019; “Alegria” a globally inspired album and “Under Paris Skies”
the music of Paris and Edith Piaf.
Table reservations are recommended for this show. Tables will be held until 1:30 p.m. Call 250-324-2245.
