Connecting NB & UK artists with audiences here and abroad!
Tickets on sale Friday, February 28th
Music Runs Through It and Sounds Just Fine, in association with Music New Brunswick and the Province of New Brunswick, are thrilled to announce Across the Pond 2020 featuring Julie Aubé and Luke Jackson.
This tour will see the two solo artists presented in a double bill over five dates in May throughout New Brunswick. Reciprocally, the artists will travel to the UK within the next 12 months to complete a short tour there.
These unique shows offer Julie and Luke exposure to new audiences, and the opportunity for these audiences and communities to experience world class artists in intimate local venues. The exciting prospect of connecting brilliant artists provides opportunities for collaboration and creative exploration that will result in one-off, memorable shows at each venue.
Hailing from Moncton, Julie Aubé is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist well-known as a member of the band Les Hay Babies. In 2016, Julie felt drawn to write an album of her own, so recorded and co-produced Joie de vivre with Marc Pérusse. The result is a vintage-sounding psychedelic rock record, with lyrics firmly planted in the present day that moves everyone who listens.
Award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Luke Jackson, has now released five studio albums and a live recording and tours widely in Europe and North America. Jackson is an accomplished performer who impresses from the outset and takes his audience on a journey with songs of love, hope, sorrow, and melancholy via the styles of folk, roots, blues, Americana and soul.
