What a night! 
Fortunate to say the least, to host Jory Nash @GAS, performing older as well as brand new tunes that will appear on his upcoming recording.
The evening began beautifully with Nancy Dutra and her gorgeously sultry voice and guitar.
It was lovely to have an evening of guitar and voice from both performers -intimate but the nonetheless powerful. 
Thanks to Frank and Julia for organizing this event and thanks to both performers- very special people.
A perfectly fabulous weekend of really great music by really, really great Toronto musicians ( and very nice folks to boot!)

"Masterful storytelling with rich segues into brilliant and captivating songs. A Jory Nash live show is a joy to experience! It's always a complete stage show - thoughtful, brilliant songs punctuated with clever and entertaining stories. The recordings are brilliant but Jory gives it all on stage." - Liz Scott, Eaglewood Folk Festival AD
Jory Nash is an award-winning singer-songwriter and storyteller who blends elements of folk, jazz, blues, pop & soul into an original stew of sound. He has recorded 7 critically acclaimed albums, including his newest CD Little Pilgrim, which was nominated for a 2013 Canadian Folk Music Award. His 2009 album New Blue Day was named Penguin Eggs Magazine Critic’s Choice Album of the Year and was also nominated for Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Producer. He is also a previous winner of the OCFF Songs From The Heart Award.
Nancy Dutra’s debut CD, 'Time Will Tell', has charted on the Euro-Americana chart and has received glowing reviews from such publications as No Depression, Exclaim, Now Magazine, Roots Music Canada and The Alternate Root. The album features ollaborations with acclaimed Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith and celebrated U.S. songwriter Kevin Welch.The spare, lean strength of her concise songs derives partly from her Portuguese heritage. From an early age, Dutra always enjoyed the stripped-down, folk-blues feel of fado music that her parents played for her, especially the saudade– the emotional peak of the song where the singer fully, truly reveals herself. She goes deep, and real, and it's powerful stuff.
