WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Veronneau is an acoustic, Latin Jazz and Gypsy Swing group. The group is led by Quebecoise vocalist, Lynn Veronneau and accompanied by the twin acoustic guitars of Ken Avis (UK), David Rosenblatt (US/Brazil), and Pete Walby (US) on percussion.
Equally at home as in an intimate jazz club or performing at the WAMMIES or Jazz festivals, Veronneau is an audience favorite performing in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. Lynn Veronneau lights up the stage, engaging the audience with her vocal interpretations. The acoustic guitars of Ken Avis and David Rosenblatt, and the percussion of Pete Walby provide the rhythm, harmony and energy to propel the music from Brazillian Bossa Nova and Samba, to French Chanson and standards of the American song book.
Canadian jazz critic Jordan Richardson described it as "a cultural compendium of musical styles surrounding an astonishing voice - an exciting offering for those thirsting for something unique and beautiful".
