The much anticipated Across the Pond tour featuring Julie Aubé and Luke Jackson had to be rescheduled twice since 2020, but will finally roll out April 26-30 in five locations around the province.
This tour is being presented by Music Runs Through It (NB) and Sounds Just Fine (UK), in association with Music/Musique New Brunswick and the Province of New Brunswick. Tickets are available online through Eventbrite (click here).
This tour will see the two solo artists presented in a double bill over five dates throughout New Brunswick. Reciprocally, the NB artist will travel to the UK in the fall 2022 to complete the Across the Pond tour.
These unique shows offer Julie and Luke exposure to new audiences, and the opportunity for these audiences and communities to experience world class artists in intimate local venues. The exciting prospect of connecting musicians provides opportunities for collaboration and creative exploration that will result in one-off, memorable shows at each venue.
Hailing from Moncton, Julie Aubé is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist well-known as a member of the much-loved band Les Hay Babies. In 2016, Julie felt drawn to write an album of her own, so recorded and co-produced Joie de vivre with Marc Pérusse. The result is a vintage-sounding psychedelic rock record, with lyrics firmly planted in the present day that moves everyone who listens.
Award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Luke Jackson, has now released five studio albums and a live recording, and tours widely throughout Europe and North America. Jackson is an accomplished performer who impresses from the outset and takes his audience on a journey with songs of love, hope, sorrow, and melancholy via the styles of folk, roots, blues, Americana and soul.
