Soulful Marreiros to sing at the Old Dutch Inn

Musical venue in Qualicum Beach to present a European musical treat

Her music has been described as evocative and soulful, and when she sings in Portuguese she embodies the music she grew up listening to.

Sara Marreiros is Victoria’s master of Portuguese fado and she takes the audience from delight to despair and back again when she sings the traditional folk music.

Portuguese fado is best heard in a small venue and The Old Dutch Inn is the perfect setting to enjoy the Victoria’s reigning queen of the mournful fado.

Marreiros will be performing at the Qualicum Beach restaurant along with pianist Ron Hadley on April 27 and 28 singing in both English and Portuguese; everything from fado to bossa nova/samba to jazz to country and western.

The remarkable vocalist has been discovering her own voice by merging the music of her roots and the music she came of age with.

If you are looking for music and a great meal this weekend  check out The Old Dutch Inn.

The Friday and Saturday night entertainment gets going at 6 p.m.
