Dedicated To You – East Coast Tour 2020

This spring, Jill Barber is dedicating a series of intimate shows to you. Built from your favourite songs and the stories behind them, the shows give you a chance to have Jill serenade your loved one live from the stage.

A Note from Jill:

“For me, there is no greater compliment than hearing that a song I wrote has become “our song” for another a couple. It means so much to me to know that a song of mine can instantly transport you back to another place, time, or person in your life.

This fall I will be heading out on tour to play a series of intimate shows inspired by the songs that resonate most with you. I want to hear from you personally: what songs speak to you and why? The shows will be built from your stories and memories.

Submit your stories and you could have your dedication played at the show in your town! To enter your submission:

  • Visit the jillbarber.com/dedicatedtoyou
  • Select the concert nearest you
  • Enter the song title, the person are dedicating the song to, and your story with that song.

We may not all be songwriters, but we all have a story, and for every great story there is a perfect soundtrack. I look forward to dedicating this tour to you!”

 

About Jill Barber:

Canada’s Sweetheart Jill Barber heads out on tour this spring with her ‘Dedicated To You’ tour, a special series of concerts composed of dedications from her fans to their loved ones. The three-time Juno Award nominated singer-songwriter will open the floor to requests and dedications of her most-loved songs through her website, where fans can share the stories and memories associated with her music.

Jill’s critically acclaimed repertoire spans a transformative spectrum from folk, to vocal jazz, to pop, and includes songs in both French and English. Following up her 2018 album Metaphora, which featured the #1 hit song ‘Girl’s Gotta Do,” her breakthrough jazz album Chances earned a Gold certification for 40,000 copies sold in Canada. Jill’s work has earned her awards, such as the Sirius XM Jazz Artist of the Year and the East Coast Music Award for Album of the Year, and scores of fans, including Blue Rodeo, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson, who called Jill “a real songwriter, and a damn good songwriter.”  Her evocative and timeless songs have been featured in film and TV, scoring shows such as Orange Is The New Black, The L Word, and Heartland, as well as powering a global advertising campaign for Chrysler with the track ‘Never Quit Loving You.’ An unforgettable, enchanting performer, Jill has headlined iconic venues such as Toronto’s Massey Hall and Roy Thompson Hall, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre, Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre and Toykyo’s Blue Note and Cotton Club. The ‘Dedicated To You’ tour will be an intimate and personal showcase of Jill’s most-loved music.

Ryan Cook & Sunny Acres
featuring a Tribute to Buck Owens & the Bakersfield Sound

Ryan Cook & Sunny Acres are a five-piece eclectic Country/Western & Swing ensemble that blends jazz, hillbilly, & folk with home-brewed Canadian ballads. The band features Cook centre-stage on acoustic guitar in his familiar thumb-picking fashion along with Kye Ehresman (drums), Dave Campbell (pedal steel), Jill Chambers (upright bass) and Phil Sedore (lead guitar). Their 2019 concerts include songs from Cook’s award-winning albums, most recently Having A Great Time (2018 Music Nova Scotia Country Recording of the Year), plus a special medley to Buck Owens & The Bakersfield Sound that you will not want to miss!

Buck Owens created the “Bakersfield Sound”, a distinct flavour of country music that opposed the “Nashville sound” charting 21 #1 hits on Billboard charts between 1963-1988. In this show you’ll hear the familiar songs of Buck’s catalog like “A Tiger by the Tail”, “Waitin in your Welfare Line”, “Together Again”, and collaborations/cover songs Buck worked into his shows of artists like Simon & Garfunkel, Ringo Starr, The Band, and Dwight Yoakam.
