The Music of Ellington & Armstrong, featuring Melissa-Marie Shriner, Sarah Jerrom & Faith Amour:


On Sunday, Aug. 19th, jazz singers Melissa-Marie Shriner, Sarah Jerrom and Faith Amour present the music of Duke Ellington & Louis Armstrong from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at theMahtay Café & Lounge in downtown St. Catharines.



"The month of August brings the birthdays of jazz icons Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong, both celebrated pioneers of jazz in its early years. Jazz singer Sarah Jerrom has been craving to delve into the exquisite songbook of Duke Ellington for quite a while. When singer Melissa-Marie Shriner invited her to perform a trio concert with Toronto-based singer Faith Amour this August, it became the perfect opportunity to explore the Ellington songbook as well as songs made famous by Louis Armstrong. 



On Sunday, Aug. 19th, three lush, velvety voices singing your favourite Ellington and Armstrong jazz standards will be sure to have each and every listener smiling and tapping their feet!"




"Joined by Doug Mundy on piano and Rob McBride on upright bass, two highly regarded and in-demand musicians in their own right, the three singers will take the audience on a journey into the profound and joyful songbooks of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. 



Solos by these seasoned singers will be interspersed with duets and trio performances harkening back to the famous duets of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. The concert promises to be a diverse and thoroughly enjoyable listening experience."

The Singers!

Here’s a little more about the singers!


Melissa-Marie Shriner:  

Melissa-Marie Shriner is celebrated as a versatile performer and songwriter of solo concerts and self-produced shows performed in Canada and abroad. Lauded for her ability to adeptly sing across multiple genres, her musical base is wide, with her feet comfortably planted in the classical, jazz and folk/roots/songwriting worlds. Her latest jazz endeavours include her sophomore jazz recording, “A Christmas Love Song”, a throwback to the classic Holiday recordings of the 1940's and 50's, which was released to high acclaim in November of 2017, and she plans to release an album of original and classical crossover music in 2020. -www.melissamarieshriner.com 



Sarah Jerrom:

“We really love Sarah (Jerrom’s) stunning sophisticated jazz… the style is powerful, stirring yet gentle and very subtle… Sarah’s feel and experience is evident and shows in a very confident way…” – Peter Merrett – Programming Director, PBS 106-7FM Melbourne, Australia 


Sarah Jerrom is a vocalist, composer and arranger specializing in jazz and creative/experimental music. She has composed and arranged instrumental and vocal music for various projects, most recently including her own nine-piece chamber jazz group, “The Yeats Project”. Featuring Sarah’s compositions and arrangements set to the poetry of W.B. Yeats, “The Yeats Project” is Sarah’s second full-length album, following up on her critically acclaimed 2007 debut album, “Illuminations”. A graduate of the University of Toronto's jazz performance program, Sarah performs frequently in Toronto and the Niagara Region. - www.sarahjerrom.com



Faith Amour: 

"Like Nina Simone, only not so serious!" - Jaymz Bee, Jazz FM 91, on Faith Amour 


Faith Amour is a Toronto-based jazz recording artist and songwriter, whose vocal finesse and charismatic presence have amassed her musical friends in North America, Europe and South America. Her multi-lingual debut album, recorded in the Southwest U.S. won the award for Best Jazz CD at the NMMAs. Appearing regularly in classic and modern jazz ensembles alongside some of Canada’s best jazz musicians, her live performances are riveting and never the same twice. This concert will be her debut performance in St. Catharines. - www.faithamourjazz.com
