Juno and Canadian Folk Music Award winner, Dominic Mancuso will be presenting a multi-lingual repertoire taken from his last two cds; the Juno awarded ‘World Music Album of the Year’ – Comfortably Mine and his internationally acclaimed Sub Urban Gypsy.

Dominic Mancuso is an acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer, defining a rich hybrid vibe, fusing the multicultural flavours of his hometown with the savoury sounds of his Sicilian heritage. A Juno and Canadian Folk Music Award winner, Dominic’s brand of world fusion is underscored by an “…infectious on-stage energy, zeal for storytelling and a voice that is nothing less than lusty, emotive and freighted with passionate sincerity.” – Graham Pilsworth, Atlantic Jazz Festival.
