Frazey Ford to play Capitol double-header

Local musicians Steve Brockley and Pauline Lamb will open.

Frazey Ford wowed fans at the Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival earlier this year

When Kootenay musician Frazey Ford took the stage at the Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival earlier this year, it was just before sunset on the Sunday night.

The former member of the Be Good Tanyas had crowd-mashing fans on the beach in front of her, and that’s when things started to get biblical.

“I thought she took them to church. She delivered her material perfectly,” said festival director Paul Hinrichs, who booked her to return for two upcoming gigs at the Capitol Theatre on Dec. 7 and 8. One of them has already sold out.

“With the sunset behind her, we’d kind of teed her up for this magical experience and I think it resonated through the crowd. She played an extended set and it was an absolute home run.”

Which is why it was a no-brainer to invite her back.

“Frazey has a ton of roots here. She’s from Castlegar, so this is hometown show for her, and she attended Selkirk College. She was long overdue to come play a show in Nelson.”

And the fact that she’s hand-selected Steve Brockley and Pauline Lamb to open for her makes this “a perfect storm” said Hinrichs.

“The community loves Frazey.”
