Kate Schutt

When: Tue., Oct. 6, 9 p.m. 2009

Talking to Kate Schutt over the phone from Guelph, Ontario, the jazz musician simply cannot say enough about her just-finished trip to Brazil. "This little 17th-century town put on this internationally acclaimed jazz festival!" explains Schutt, adding that she received an email to join the Ouro Preto Jazz Festival last April and thought it was a prank. With further research she discovered the annual festival is as renowned as it claims, signed up, flew to Brazil and brought her best to a trip that will continue to influence her. This zest for both music and life spill out of the phone receiver in waves, and it's little wonder Schutt is tagged as a rising star in the jazz world. The Pennsylvania native moved to Guelph five years ago, and Duane Andrews, Newfoundland guitarist, suggested a Halifax show. Schutt says she can't wait to check out the east coast, so give her a warm welcome at the Carleton this Tuesday. –Holly Gordon
