Cécile Doo-Kingué Returns for Magnolia Concert Series

This post was originally supposed to appear last week and failed to due so due to a scheduling error, apologies.

Montreal’s Cécile Doo-Kingué returns to Saint John at the Magnolia Cafe, this Friday January 31st. Her deep, soulful vocals compliment her dazzling blues fretwork and African Folk influence. Doo-Kingué, a first generation New Yorker born to Cameroonian immigrants, has lived in France and the US before becoming a resident of Montréal. In addition to appearances at the Montreal Jazz Festival, she has accomplished an extensive amount of collaboration and production, including mixing the United Steel Workers of Montreal albums, Broken Trucks and Bottles and Kerosene & Coal. In 2008, Doo-Kingué and Gern f. of USWOM started Chick Pickin’ Mondays, a night promoting women singer-songwriters.
