Across the Pond concert series a go for 2022

Category: music 223

This unique touring series will pair Julie Aubé (NB) and Luke Jackson (UK) for performances throughout New Brunswick and the UK this year.

Music Runs Through It’s Across the Pond tour featuring Julie Aubé (NB) and Luke Jackson (UK), has had to be rescheduled twice since 2020, but will finally roll out in April with five performances taking place throughout the province. The tour is being presented in partnership with Sounds Just Fine (UK), in association with Music New Brunswick and the Province of New Brunswick.

Conceived as a musical exchange between New Brunswick and the UK, these unique shows offer both Aubé and Jackson exposure to new audiences, opportunities for collaboration and creative exploration that will result in one-off, memorable shows at each venue. Aubé will make her way overseas this fall for dates TBA.

Hailing from Moncton, Julie Aubé is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist well-known as a member of the much-loved band Les Hay Babies. In 2016, Julie felt drawn to write an album of her own, so recorded and co-produced Joie de vivre with Marc Pérusse. The result is a vintage-sounding psychedelic rock record, with lyrics firmly planted in the present day that moves everyone who listens.

Award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Luke Jackson, has now released five studio albums and a live recording, and tours widely throughout Europe and North America. Jackson is an accomplished performer who impresses from the outset and takes his audience on a journey with songs of love, hope, sorrow, and melancholy via the styles of folk, roots, blues, Americana and soul.
