Vandoorn & van Vugt
The TD PEI Jazz Festival will present singer-lyricist Ineke Vandoorn and guitarist-composer Marc van Vugt at St. Paul’s in Charlottetown on October 20 at 7:30 pm. The Dutch Grammy award-winning jazz duo are on tour promoting their album Crossing Canada. It was recorded live during tours playing at Canadian festivals and clubs, the Canadian Opera Company, and while performing as artists-in-residence at universities in Toronto and Vancouver. The duo also collaborated with Canadian musicians, including Mark Kelso (drums), Søren Nissen (bass) and Michael Occhipinti (guitar).
Vandoorn is an adventurous singer known for her intense range, precision and warm vocals. Van Vugt is a composer and guitarist renowned for his arrangements and improvisations. Together they create accessible, world-class jazz music that pushes the emotional and melodic boundaries of song, creating intimate landscapes with bursts of fervor, flavoured with Brazilian choro and fairytale-like Scandinavian vibes. Their original approach has taken them around the world, including Canada, the US, France, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Austria, Macedonia and Hungary.
