Blues musician plays intimate show in Walnut Grove

Montreal musician Cécile Doo-Kingué is returning to the Water Shed Arts Cafe in Walnut Grove for a small, intimate concert on Feb. 11.

Considered one of Canada’s “most electrifying and versatile guitarists,” her performance in Langley last year was “outstanding,” said Water Shed manager Naomi Lippett.

“In the end we had to move the tables back so that people could dance,” she said in an email to The Times.

“We’re super excited about having her back.”

Originally from New York City, Doo-Kingué is first generation from Cameroon, and plays a mix of blues, afro-folk and 1960s and ’70s soul.

In February, 2015 she released her third solo album, Anybody Listening Pt. 1: Monologues, and has shared the stage with Blind Boys of Alabama, Bernard Purdie, Tricia Foster, Scarlett Hane and many more.

Doors for the Feb. 11 concert open at 7 p.m., cost is $15. Contact Water Shed Cafe for more information. Email or call 604-882-0651.
