The next performance in the Swift Current Arts Council Stars for Saskatchewan Series is coming up on Tuesday, October 24th, as award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and pianist Laila Biali comes to the Sky Centre at Living Sky Casino.
Spinner Magazine said Biali melds “traditional jazz with contemporary pop so effortlessly that neither style seems out of place on the same record”, and she's opened for Grammy award-winning artists like Chris Botti, Paula Cole, Suzanne Vega and Sting. Her album "Tracing Light" was nominated for a Juno Award for best vocal jazz album, and she is set to release a new album featuring original songs and covers of David Bowie, Coldplay and others.
