Funk-rock and blues will fill The Matchbox when the Lindsey White Band takes the stage in Red Deer on Saturday, April 18.

Schooled in classical piano, violin and vocal jazz, White discovered her talent for expressive, unconventional songwriting as a teenager and has been performing since she was 16.

The Winnipegger taught herself the guitar and for the past decade has been a favourite on the Western Canadian festival circuit.

Having put out four albums, White is routinely praised for her rich, soulful music, which has been described as “an eclectic mix of blues and funk, immersed in a solid folk-rock foundation.”

The Lindsey White Band, which also features Mitch Dorge on drums and Alasdair Dunlop on bass, will perform at The Matchbox, 110, 5301 43rd St., at 9 p.m. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door ($5 for those with valid student ID).
