Classically trained but raised on classic rock, Winnipeg musician Sister Dorothy delivers a high-energy crowd-pleasing show. Her performances feature her own roots/ pop songs on topics like love, swimming, and Judge Judy, and audiences may also catch her version of Robert Johnson’s “Walkin’ Blues” or a Duke Ellington classic. Sliding effortlessly between acoustic and electric guitars and flute, Sister Dorothy’s performance should not be missed!
