Guelph, ON, October 4, 2013 – Ticketholders for the River Run Centre’s Marc Jordan & Jane Sibbery concert will enjoy an evening of exceptional talents as two of North America’s most unique lyrical voices join forces. This co-billed performance takes place on the Main Stage on Saturday, October 19 at 8pm. The show is sponsored by Syngenta and is part of the Macquarie Music Series.
Brooklyn, New York native Marc Jordan gained fame as a songwriter, penning hit tunes for superstar performers like Diana Ross, Rod Stewart, Cher, Josh Grobin and Bette Midler. As a chart-topping composer, Jordan can be described in one word: prolific. His songs have appeared on no less than 35 million albums. He has recorded 14 of his own albums, and is the recipient of ASCAP, Juno, SOCAN, Jazz and Pop awards. Known for his smooth, evocative style, Jordan will perform selections from his new album, On a Perfect Day. Fans will all enjoy some of his works which have long been part of the playlists of performers like Chicago, Joe Cocker, Bonnie Raitt, Olivia Newton John and his wife, Amy Sky.
Sharing the marquee with Jordan will be Jane Siberry. Part performance artist, part singer/songwriter, Siberry has a haunting and quirky style that has been described as impossible to duplicate, and just as impossible to forget. Critics characterize her as “Visionary, uplifting, unique.” Guelph played a central role in Siberry’s early musical development. She studied music at the University of Guelph and began performing in folk clubs in Guelph with a group called Java. Jive. In 2006, Siberry let go of her home and her worldly possessions, assumed the identity ‘Issa’, and set off on an artistic pilgrimage. Three years later she reclaimed her identity as Jane Siberry, and reemerged with new energy, passion, and – of course – new music in the form of a trilogy of albums. She shirks convention at every turn, offering fans the option to set their own price when they buy her recorded music. “I just want what’s best for the music,” she told an interviewer at the Solihull News. “If I have success commercially, that’s a bonus.” As all Siberry fans understand, the one constant they can always expect from this performer is the unexpected.
