ANNAPOLIS ROYAL, NS - The blues will rock the stage at King’s Theatre in Annapolis Royal June 9 at 7:30 p.m. as two Maritime blues legends, Theresa Malenfant and John Campbelljohn, join forces for an unforgettable show.
Hailing from Dieppe, NB, Theresa Malenfant grew up surrounded by a musically talented family. She made her singing debut at the age of 14 and was soon on stage, singing duets with the great Dutch Mason.
After many years of success, both in her native Canada and during a five-year stint living and performing in Europe, Malenfant has a number of critically acclaimed albums to her credit and 30 years of performing under her belt.
The vocal powerhouse in the tradition of Janis Joplin and Etta James has amassed an incredible career, one that shows no signs of slowing down. Her strong and powerful vocals will shake the King’s Theatre foundations.
King’s Theatre also welcomes the man with the soulful and rich voice John Campbelljohn, whose acoustic blues style and technique on either guitar or dobro lap steel is legendary. He ups the ante with an electric sound that will captivate the audience.
The rhythm Campbelljohn has set as the base for every performance is a telltale sign of his Cape Breton roots. He pulls strands from rock, reggae, roots, and pure country to weave his own brand of power blues.
Malenfant and Campbelljohn’s show promises to be a night that no blues lover would want to miss.
Tickets are available at the box office at 902-532-7704 or online at kingstheatre.ca.
