On Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m., sultry songstress Jill Barber is back at the Fredericton Playhouse by popular demand as part of her Fool’s Gold tour.

An alumna of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, Barber has performed at the Playhouse on numerous occasions, most recently in 2012. She is a much-loved Fredericton favourite, thanks to her versatility as a songwriter and performer.

At first listen, the quality that sets Barber apart is her distinctive voice. But it’s her ability to write an immediately memorable song that has made her one of Canada’s most recognizable artists.

On her sixth studio album, 2014’s Fool’s Gold, Barber continues to explore musical styles, from traditional country, to jazz and Motown, though she rarely works neatly within the confines of any one genre.

In concert, Barber charms her audiences while weaving a romantic spell that draws listeners in and keeps them hooked on her every note. This is a show that promises to be fresh and intimate thanks to Barber’s innate talent and confidence.

Tickets for Jill Barber are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office at 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
