Chemainus jazz vocalist Zandra Burns is performing Sunday

Zandra Burns back at ‘The Shoe’

Jazz at the Horseshoe Bay Inn Pub returns this Sunday (Dec. 15) and Sunday, Dec. 22 from 4-6 p.m.

This Sunday, Chemainus jazz singer Zandra Burns is back at the Horseshoe Bay Inn Pub to warm up music lovers on a winter afternoon.

Burns will be performing with Wes Carroll and Neil Baird from 4-6 p.m. She will also perform Sunday, Dec. 22 from 4-6 p.m. with Brent Jarvis.

Burns performed Sundays at the Horseshoe Bay Inn Pub in October and November, and as it gets closer to Christmas, she is looking forward to sharing music with others.

“I know it’s a cold and a busy time of year, but I invite all those who asked me ‘where are you playing?’ to come down to the Shoe between four and six this Sunday,” she said in a press release. “We are right here, making music for you in the special little town of Chemainus. There is a fireplace too.”

Burns says she is a big fan of all Christmas carols with “cool changes.”

“Right now, I am in love with an arrangement of ‘The Christmas Song’ by Mel Torme,” she said. “I grew up with eastern European ‘Kolade;’ they are beautiful but very dark sounding.”

Burns says jazz music appeals to her for many reasons.

“The word ‘jazz’ is a very broad term, but it’s more accessible and ‘listener-friendly’ than people think,” she said. “There are elements of the blues, homage to the greats (Billy, Ella, Sara, Anita, Peggy) and little bits of every record I ever fell in love with that come out in each tune. I suppose that’s why I accept the label. With standards, I get to take the most risk. That is until I write my own material.”
