Halifax Pop Explosion 2019: KAIA KATER, JENNAH BARRY with LYDIA PERSAUD at St. Matthew's United Church (Halifax) - Fri Oct 25 2019 at 8:00 pm
Montreal-born Grenadian-Canadian, Kaia’s rich jazz-fueled voice and deft songcraft have garnered acclaim from NPR, CBC Music, Rolling Stone, and No Depression. Her new album Grenades explores themes of migration and belonging and has been nominated for a 2019 JUNO award. “...plaintive, mesmerizing...writes and performs with the skill of a folk-circuit veteran...” – Rolling Stone
Hailing from the coastal haven of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, Jennah Barry is one of Atlantic Canada’s surest sirens. Moving effortlessly between folk, country and soft rock motifs, her rosewater voice sets a mood in which even the hardest truths seem palatable.
Raised on a healthy dose of the country music narrative and the spiritual motivation of gospel hymns, Lydia reconnects with her roots on her debut album “Let Me Show You”. After performing with The O’Pears, Dwayne Gretzky and Lee Fields, Lydia has established her voice in the world of folk-soul.
