"Jana Seale" Show time 7:30 pm
Welcome back Jana. Mesmerizing audiences from all over the world with her unique and gentle style, West Coast acoustic guitarist/vocalist Jana Seale was a featured guest artist on luxury cruise lines from 2006-2014. Jana's warm, dynamic delivery returns to the roots of the solo performer, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and the coffeehouses of times gone by... Now back on shore, she reinterprets folk, country and singer/songwriter favorites covering decades from the 60's to modern times. Inspired by open tuning troubadour Nanci Griffith, and Eva Cassidy's simply elegant guitar arrangements, Jana performs with warm, understated finger style guitar. But it's her multi-facetted voice that captivates her audience night after night. Jana's five cds have travelled home with passengers from around the world and several tracks have had airplay on CBC Vancouver, and Edmonton's CKUA. Her newest album 'Retrace This Road' was released in Aug 2017.
