VIM Presents: Peggy Lee Band Album Release with Julia Ulehla
The Peggy Lee Band
On June 10, 2023, The Peggy Lee Band will celebrate the release of their album, A Giving Way on the Songlines label. A Giving Way is the sixth studio album by the Peggy Lee Band and was recorded in July 2022.
The compositions come from a place of gratitude and love for family, place and community as well as a desire to do better collectively towards justice, honour and human dignity. The ensemble playing is beautifully polished and warm and the members of the band improvise with great creativity, passion and clarity.
Drawing on various threads of Ulehla’s musical background (opera, oratorio, cabaret, musical theatre, folk traditions, pop, experimental, and new music), this performance will explore song as a medium for storytelling across a wide terrain of musical genres. Drawing on composers like Henry Purcell, Kurt Weill, Peggy Lee, Bob Dylan, PJ Harvey, Roy Orbison, Ulehla and Bajakian bring together songs that might not be paired in other contexts.
