A transplanted Cornwall songstress is returning to the Seaway City for an intimate showcase – and she’s bringing a friend.
Melanie McDonald – who goes by the stage presence Mel Brûlée – will be performing at the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery May 3 along with noted folk artist Jadea Kelly.
The two-hour program is expected to include a few numbers that Brûlée made popular locally when she was the part of Mel and the General Electryk, as well as a pile of original material.
Brûlée characterized the show as a “bring your own chair” event – so feel free to bring your favourite lawn chair of bar stool for the event.
“It’s like a house concert, but in the art gallery,” she said.
The show gets underway at 7 p.m.
Kelly, who is Brûlée’s roommate in Toronto, is a folk musician from Whitby. She has released two LPs and two EPs to date. Kelly's 2008 full-length album, Second Spring, was honoured with the "best country" award at the 2008 Toronto Independent Music Awards.
Tickets are $10, if you surf over to the art gallery’s Facebook page, and “like” it. If you don’t have access to Facebook, have a friend “like” it t get the discount. Tickets at the door are $15.
