Ground Zero Productions and Knox Presents... are very pleased to announce an evening with jazz/blues greats Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whitely on Friday, September 25th. There will be two concerts available, one at 5:00 and one at 7:30 p.m. and both have limited seating.

Every song has a tale to tell, and Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whitely convey each one in their elegant, eloquent fashion. When Diana Braithwaite sings, you hear passion, with sultry stories of life beautifully expressed through music. Born in Toronto, Braithwaite is a descendant of the Wellington County pioneers in Canada.

Growing up, Diana spent summers in Montreal, Quebec, in a place called "Little Burgundy", the historic African-Canadian neighbourhood where her father and the great jazz musician Oscar Peterson were both born. Dubbed "a national treasure" by JAZZ FM's Radio host Danny Marks, Diana Braithwaite combines elements from Dinah Washington, Esther Phillips and others to create her own unique appealing and expressive blues style.
