Virtual Connection Series - Jack Semple with special guest Heidi Munro
The SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival continues to bring high-calibre live music you love to the safety and comfort of your home through our Virtual Connections Series featuring some of Saskatchewan’s finest talent performing live sessions streamed for your enjoyment with professional quality audio & video.
Regina’s celebrated and award winning Jack Semple is joined by Saskatoon’s powerhouse vocalist Heidi Munro to bring his ‘modern blues’ to the Virtual Connection Series for an unforgettable performance that highlights music from Semple’s 10th studio album “Can’t Stop This Love”.
Jack Semple started his musical career playing with various Regina-based bands, and later relocated to Toronto in the late 1980s to become the lead guitarist of The Lincolns, a popular funk and rhythm and blues band. Semple has been twice nominated, in 1999 and 2000, for a Gemini Award for his soundtrack work on the television series Incredible Story Studio, won a Juno award in 1991 for best roots recording, and has two Western Canadian music awards for “Qu’Appelle” and “In the Blue Light”.
