Laila Biali Trio plays The Banff Centre tomorrow night!July 22, 2015
After a wonderful mini-tour with Jonatha Brooke
in central Oregon last week, I flew straight to Banff to begin a week of family time, performances and writing. My husband and son arrived Monday and we enjoyed some much needed R&R as a trio yesterday afternoon. George Koller flies in from Toronto tonight, just in time for our show tomorrow at The Banff Centre's fantastic subterranean venue, The Club
. A typical perk of the Banff arts experience, I have already forged a few new relationships and scheduled an impromptu co-writing session with Canadian singer-songwriter Royal Wood
for tomorrow afternoon. I also had breakfast with the U.K. trombonist, Carol Jarvis
, whom I haven't seen since we worked together with Sting in 2009! I love this place.
