Where: Victoria, BC
With an impressive nine albums to her credit, Maureen Washington’s storied musical career began in the relatively remote town of Prince George, BC. Her vocal diversity has allowed her to explore and thrive in genres including the blues, swing, jazz, and funk.
Now based in Victoria, BC, Washington continues to explore new musical avenues while piling up performances at the Victoria International JazzFest, the Prince George FolkFest, and the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival in addition to shows with blues legend Joe Lovano, the Blind Boys Of Alabama, and others.
Washington’s latest album is Harvest Moon, a carefully curated selection of cover songs made popular by Neil Young, Billie Holiday, Leonard Cohen, and others.
