Lorna has been at it again; writing, arranging and perfecting her works to bring to rehearsal. There she knows a dedicated group of musicians (some of Calgary’s finest) who will help bring her ideas to life (and life is exactly where they were born).
Saturday, April 11 at the National Music Centre at 8 pm is Lorna’s CD release for “Feet On Ground”. This is Lorna’s fifth full length CD of original music and it is a journey, instrumentally, vocally, and emotionally. Richard Harding’s performances are nothing short of inspired and the support from the rhythm section locks it all in. Over the past year Lorna this group has performed for numerous events (Richard on saxophones, Robin Tufts on drums, Andre Wickenheiser on trumpet and Stefano Valdo on bass) and in July the group set up their ‘home-away-from–home” at Bottega Studio in Kelowna to recording these ideas with producer, Claire Lawrence (CBC).
"Lorna is one of those rare artists who can write beautifully, play beautifully, and sing beautifully. She does everything with great care and musicality and her music draws you in like a best friend. From the strong writing and arranging in her instrumental tracks to the engaging tone and lyrics in her vocal pieces, it's music that pleases a listener with a penchant for beautifullycrafted compositions and strongly musicalperformances." - Michelle Grégoire
"Lorna Maclachlan possesses an extraordinary passion for personal and artistic development..." - David Braid
