Shake a tail feather on Quadra

The Linda Tillery Cultural Heritage Choir, a Grammy-nominated, percussion-driven vocal ensemble from Berkeley, California will  be shakin’ a tail feather at the Quadra Community Centre, Saturday, Nov. 16, at 8 pm.

This dynamic, five-part a cappella group shares, through story and song the  traditions of African American music rooted in the deep south and strongly connected to their West African and Caribbean origins.

Musical director and cultural historian, Linda Tillery is a verteran vocalist, percussionist and Grammy-nominated producer whose career has spanned 43 years. Her powerful, shimmering alto voice has been showcased in many popular bands and venues around the Bay Area of California.

Advance tickets $20 for this rhythmic and vocal treat and are now on sale on Quadra at Hummingbird Office and Art Supply and Works of H’Art, and at the Music Plant in Campbell River.  If any tickets are left, the door price will be $25.  For more information, call 250-285-3204 or visit the Choir’s Website at: http://www.berkeleyagency.com/resources/artist-roster.htm.
