A'Court, Spiegel & Vinnick: An International Roots ‘n’ Blues Kitchen Party!

  • Posted on March 14, 2023

“Vinnick is a unique talent; a triple threat singer/songwriter/guitarist. She is emotive, joyous and funky all in the same song." - Blues Blast Magazine

“A'Court slides into his role as smooth soul man with ease…Singing high and mighty, rising into falsetto, getting into the groove, or slaying us with tenderness, he's a singing tour-de-force.”
- Bob Mersereau, CBC

“Spiegel is ALL presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomizes control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.” - The Age, Melbourne

VERNON, BC— Join multi-award-winning artists, Canadians Suzie Vinnick and Charlie A’Court, and Australian Lloyd Spiegel, for a dynamic evening filled with songs, stories and laughs as they take their roots ‘n’ blues kitchen party from coast-to-coast. The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre presents A'Court, Spiegel & Vinnick in an intimate OnSTAGE Concert on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, at 7:30PM.

Crossing the globe, commanding both festival and theatre stages, each are seasoned performers, singer-songwriters and storytellers on their own. Together, they create magic by showcasing not only solo works, but also their shared collaborations.

Often stylistically compared to mentors like Eric Clapton and Otis Redding, Charlie A’Court possesses a mighty voice, fierce guitar work and contemporary songwriting that is felt by fans across Canada and beyond. His latest album, When Country Gets The Blues, is nominated for Country Recording of The Year at the 2022 East Coast Music Awards. CBC’s Bob Mersereau said “A'Court slides into his role as smooth soul man with ease…Singing high and mighty, rising into falsetto, getting into the groove, or slaying us with tenderness, he's a singing tour-de-force.”

Award-winning Australian artist Lloyd Spiegel delivers one of the most unique solo concert experiences in the world. Blending jaw-dropping guitar chops with a commanding voice, powerful songwriting, storytelling and comedy, it’s no wonder that he’s described as an “Oz Roots & Blues Icon” by Rolling Stone Australia.

Suzie Vinnick has had a triumphant career. She is a three-time JUNO Award nominee, recently won her 11th Maple Blues Award in 2023 for Vocalist of the Year, earned special recognition in the 2019 Saskatchewan Jazz Festival Award and was nominated for a 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award for Producer of the Year with her co-producer, Mark Lalama. Suzie has toured nationally with Downchild, Stuart McLean’s The Vinyl Café, the John McDermott Band. Her prodigious guitar and bass chops complement what Access Magazine calls “…a voice of spun gold and honey.”

A'Court, Spiegel & Vinnick perform at the Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre in the very popular and intimate OnSTAGE Concert format with the audience seated cabaret-style, directly on the main stage. Don’t wait – tickets are limited!
