Diane Schuur
Two-time Grammy Award winner and one of contemporary jazz's leading vocalist/pianists, Diane Schuur brings her distinctive jazz styling to the Northshore Performing Arts Center (18125 92nd Ave. NE, Bothell). Schuur and her band will perform in concert Saturday, November 12 at 7:30 PM.

A longtime disciple of Dinah Washington and other legendary jazz singers of the '40s and '50s, Schuur has built a stellar career by embracing not only the jazz of her parents' generation, but also the pop music of her own youth during the late 1950s and '60s. Born in Tacoma, Washington, in December 1953, Schuur grew up in nearby Auburn, Washington, where her father was a police captain. Nicknamed Deedles at a young age, Schuur discovered the world of jazz via her father, a pianist, and her mother, who kept a formidable collection of Duke Ellington and Dinah Washington records in the house.

In a recording career that spans nearly three decades—and includes two Grammy Awards and three Grammy nominations—Schuur's music has explored nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape. In her latest CD release The Gathering, Schuur turns a corner into a brand new lane, infusing her jazz sensibilities into ten country-brewed tunes from such seminal songwriters as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Hank Cochran, Kris Kristofferson, Roger Miller and others.

Ticket prices for this special event are Adults/$45, Seniors/$40, and Youth under 17 yrs/$25. Tickets may be purchased online at www.npacf.org or by calling (425) 984-2471.
