Jobird’s Folk Cabaret is a theatrical and quirky suitcase of songs inspired by the multi cultural ghosts of Cumberland’s past, present and future. When stuck in an old wooden house with CBC radio, a piano, a vivid imagination, and a panache for musical theatre, you never know what characters might come to visit. During the 28 years Joanna Finch has lived on Allen Avenue raising children, teaching Vocal Music and cooking up reasons to leave, her muse has blessed her with hundreds of songs in every imaginable style. With several acclaimed recordings and concert tours around the globe Jobird splits her year between Cumberland and China where she works as a holistic practitioner and musician.
Here is a sampling of the eclectic cabaret of Cumberland’s own Joanna Finch. With Guest performers Lisa Hamilton and Selen Tiryakioglu.
