On Saturday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m., Treasa Levasseur and the Daily Special will bring their smart and soulful brand of music to the Fredericton Playhouse.

Blending old school R&B grooves with a songwriting ethic that comes from years of playing, Levasseur has become a hot name in the folk, roots, blues and jazz scenes. To follow up her 2008 critically acclaimed, Juno-nominated album Low Fidelity, Levasseur gathered some of Canada’s best players to help record her latest album, Broad. The album combines nine strong, original tracks with covers of songs by the likes of Neil Young and Randy Newman.

Levasseur is an extremely versatile artist who has been compared to Laura Nyro, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King and Marcia Ball. She has performed at prestigious events such as the Toronto Jazz Festival, Calgary Blues Festival and the Montreal Jazz Festival. Fredericton audiences will remember her from her breathtaking performance at the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival in 2008, during which the crowd was blown away by her unique talent.

Joined by her band the Daily Special, this enchanting songstress will once again wow Fredericton audiences during her performance at the Playhouse. The band consists of top musicians Brad Hart on drums, bassist Brian Kobayakawa, harmonica player Paul Reddick and guitar aces David Baxter and Champagne James Robertson.

Treasa Levasseur and the Daily Special will combine the best of blues, jazz, roots and folk for a show that audiences won’t soon forget.

Tickets for Treasa Levasseur and the Daily Special are available through the Playhouse box office 1-866-884-5800, or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
