The Woodhouse featuring Barbra Lica. With over 10 years of sold-out shows throughout Canada, The Woodhouse amazes audiences with their unique arrangements of holiday classics mixed with jazz, pop, and Latin. Described as a “little big band” with their quintet plus vocals configuration, they have received regular rotation on CBC Radio and JazzFM. Their debut album, Home for Christmas, was nominated for Jazz Recording of the Year by Music Nova Scotia and features Order of Canada recipient Don Thompson on vibraphone as well as Nova Scotia vocalist Jennah Barry (Ron Sexsmith, Rose Cousins) who was featured on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe.
This year, The Woodhouse will be collaborating with Juno-nominated vocalist Barbra Lica who was named one of Canada’s Top 5 Jazz Singers by the CBC. They are excited to be bringing new arrangements and a few surprises to their highly anticipated annual holiday tour.
