Event Notes


Piva presents: Jazz at the Anvil celebrates local, talented musicians from the Metro Vancouver area. The goal of these shows is to both elevate the appreciation of jazz, but also to engage, strengthen, and amplify arts in the community. Piva is also passionate about supporting the community: proceeds from these events go to New Westminster charities.

Kelman got her music scene start in Manitoba, later heading to Hollywood to study at the Musician’s Institute. After graduating from the program with honours, she returned to Canada, and ended up becoming the lead singer and principal writer for Farmer’s Daughter. This award-winning country group racked up Gold albums, Juno, CCMA and BCCMA Awards-all while touring extensively.

Kelman is also a teacher, perfecting “The 5 Point Singing System” that helps students perfect their singing craft in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. She’s also created kids’ music and is an author of children’s books, too.

In the minimally existent spare time she has, Kelman performs at gigs with her dream bands: The Polyester Philharmonic-focusing on the 60s and 70s; her Café Brasilia Band featuring North American Pop with South American Style; and her Groovy Lounge Band featuring beloved songs from the 40’s to current day.

Says Kelman, “I’m proud of my ability to wear 6” platform heels, sing, dance and keep an audience engaged for 3 hours as well as anyone half my age, AND look fabulous doing it.”

Show attendees will also have a chance to win prizes, including a $100 gift card to Piva, and two tickets to an upcoming show!
