Elizabeth Shepherd lights up Global Cabaret Fest

Just before taking off for a brief US tour, dazzling Toronto singer/pianist Elizabeth Shepherd will stop by the Distillery District to swing through few songs from her brilliant new Heavy Falls The Night (Do Right!) album during an intimate hour-long set at Young Centre for the Performing Arts (55 Mill Street, Building 49) tonight (Thursday, September 30) starting at 10:30 pm. Tickets are $20.
Shepherd's performance is part of the Global Cabaret Festival (formerly known as the Canwest Cabaret Festival) which involves 150 artists playing 60 concerts over four days from September 30 through October 3. Check out the festival site ( for schedule information and tickets. Those who won't be able to make it out to the Distillery District to see Shepherd this evening, she'll be returning from her stateside jaunt to play a full show at the El Mocambo on Sunday (October 17).
