Folk favourite Little Miss Higgins to visit Chilliwack

One night only: Little Miss Higgins and the Winnipeg Five at Bozzini’s Upstairs Lounge on July 12

After taking some quiet time following their spectacular spring music festival, Bozzini’s Upstairs Lounge is all jazzed up for the upcoming arrival of Little Miss Higgins, who’s making a pit stop on her way to the Vancouver Folk Festival with her new band, The Winnipeg Five.

Little Miss Higgins played to a sold-out show during her last stop in Chilliwack, said Emmanuel Asprakis, who owns Bozzini’s.

“We remembered what a great performer she was, so we are glad to have her back with her trio again this July.”

From the Great Northern Plains of Western Canada, Little Miss Higgins struts and serenades her way, guitar in hand, lips blazoned red, onto any stage.

And while she may be small, Little Miss Higgins is mighty: this pocket-sized powerhouse plays music brewed up in old-time country blues, sprinkled with a little jazz and a hint of folk.

And whether she’s singing songs about buying Bargain Shop Panties in small towns on tour, or plaintive and passionate love songs, she has a relatable knack for writing about real things. Her tunes are rooted in the truth, both practical and universal, and presented in a poetic and wonderful way.

Born in Brooks, Alberta, raised in Independence, Kansas, and now living in Winnipeg via a long stay in small town Saskatchewan, she brings her notable voice, acute observations and a wry humor to all she lives and sings about.

Nominated for JUNO and Maple Blues Awards, Little Miss Higgins is an award-winning musician and recipient of the Favourite Blues Artist of the Year at the 8th Annual Indies Awards.

Little Miss Higgins and the Winnipeg Five take to the Upstairs Lounge stage on July 12. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the show begins at 8:00. Tickets are $20, and are available for purchase at Bozzini’s, or they can be reserved by calling 604-792-0744.
