Join Kim Greenwood and a wonderful array of Canada’s top musicians as they take you on a magical mystery tour of some of the Jazz and American Songbook greats of the 20th century. From Gershwin to Johnny Mercer, through fellow Hungarian Kosma, to Rogers and Hart, you will be both entertained and educated by this fascinating tour of the forgotten verse to these great songs, including the revival of some long lost gems. Verse provides context and the backstory is often surprising!

​Kim's warm tone lends itself beautifully to ballads that embody the American Songbook repertoire and then she’ll turn around and rip through an uptempo jazz tune; she's a multi-faceted performer and equally loves performing jazz, pop, classical and musical theatre. She's an actor at heart and this comes shining through in all of her repertoire, engaging audiences at every turn.

In 2017 Kim's "Ella at 100" tribute show performed to sold out crowds at Hermann's & Osborne Bay Pub. She has also produced & performed in a number of shows at Hermann's since 2015, all to capacity crowds.

Kim’s stellar ensemble includes Karel Roessingh on piano, Joey Smith on double bass and guitar, Kelby MacNayr on drums + special guest Roy Styffe on sax and clarinet!
