Event Notes


With one hit after the other, Leisa Way and Friends share the timeless songs of The Great American Songbook. This influential era of music began in the early 20th century, and continues to be written today.

Leisa Way and her powerhouse quintet of superb musicians are fine interpreters of melody, story and song. This concert shares a treasure trove of influential and popular songs from Harold Arlen to Johnny Mercer, from Joni Mitchell to Leonard Cohen and Willie Nelson, to Irving Berlin and Paul McCartney.

Leisa and her band explore and celebrate both the classics of yesterday, and the new standards of today! Most recently, in 2023 Leisa and her band were featured on the cover of International Musician Magazine, and Leisa won a "Toronto Musician of the Year" award in 2021 and 2022.
