PAUL BEABRUN ENCORE

APRIL 15 •8:00pm

Paul Beaubrun was born in Port-au-Prince Haiti, lives in New York City and has a love affair with Cobourg, Ontario. He played at Cobourg's Victoria Hall in August of last year in a benefit for Saskia Tomkins and returned again to play the intimate Cobourg Loft with a crack jazz/blues ensemble in November, bringing the audience to its feet. Along the way he opened on consecutive September nights for Ms Lauryn Hill at Massey Hall and received standing ovations, and has since been opening for her throughout the United States. He also recently played at NYC's Beacon Theatre alongside Jackson Browne, Roseanne Cash, Marc Cohn and Eddie Vedder in a concert to raise awareness about gun violence. Paul is a huge talent and moves easily with big names in entertainment. His guitar skills are exciting and impeccable and his vocals are rich and transfixing, weaving English, French and Creole. To me he seems a little bit Bob Marley, a little bit Jimi Hendrix. Paul Beaubrun is quietly a hero in his philanthropic work for Haitian youth. His manner is gentle and humble ... but his friend Jackson Browne has named him "The Beast" for his work on a soon-to-be released album collaboration. What a treat to have such a talent playing our home Town Concert Hall!
