Friday, May 22 at 7 p.m. — TINMOUTH — Jenni Johnson and the Jazz Junketeers make a welcome comeback to the Tinmouth Old Firehouse concert series on Friday, May 22. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Johnson is a widely travelled jazz singer whose home and roots are in Vermont. Her full, smooth voice offers an ideal format for her collection of American jazz classics, as well as, blues, swing, and funk music. Firehouse audiences have been excited by her unique style and versatile renditions. She’s had them smiling from their souls, while their feet danced happily to the beat. Johnson says she’s still learning how to use her instrument, the vocal chords, with each performance. She has performed the song “Moonlight In Vermont”” around the world in places such as Yaroslavl and Rostov in Russia, Paris, Montreal, and, of course, Tinmouth. In addition, she has sharpened her musical skills with opportunities working with national jazz/blues musicians from New Orleans. At the Old Firehouse she’ll be backed by the Jazz Junketeers, a group of jazz playing friends who blend perfectly with Johnson.
The Old Firehouse is at Mountain View Road and Vt. 140 in downtown Tinmouth. There is a suggested donation of $10, 90 percent of which goes to the performers. Homemade desserts, coffee and tea will be available; donations for them will help support community activities.
