Massey Hall and Fource Entertainment Presents
With a soulful voice straight from the golden age of country and rockabilly music, Tami Neilson has been described as "A red-hot honky-tonker, somewhere between Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson with perhaps just a little bit of Peggy Lee sophistication.” (-Nick Bollinger, NZ National Radio)
Singing her heart out along endless roads and stages, from her days as a young girl in Canada touring with the Neilson Family band, opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, to her full blossoming in New Zealand as a formidable talent in her own right.
Receiving critical exclaim for the explosive award winning album Dynamite! Tami Neilson has shared the stage opening for Royal Wood, and a cross Canada tour with Colin James, stopping at Massey Hall where she received a standing ovation.
The new release Don’t Be Afraid marks Tami as a new soul staple. It's a raw, deep and hopeful album that finds Tami singing out her grief. The soul taking precedence over the country as Tami found herself listening to a lot of gospel around the time of her father’s death and finding a kinship with the legendary singer Mavis Staples.
This event is 19+ and general admission.
With the Participation of the Government of Canada
