It's true what they say, music really sets the tone for an experience - wherever, whenever it is. Meet the voices behind the music at EV Long Table, happening Wednesday, August 9th.
We're so excited to announce that local artists, Lynn Olagundoye and Chris Maric will be joining us as our talent for an evening along the Bow River. This Wednesday, August 9th from 6-9pm, join us for EV Long Table, an unforgettable summer dining experience on the George C. King Bridge. This duo will be setting the mood while you enjoy a five-course meal prepared by our favourite food truck and chef collaborations.
Now, it's time to get to know the artists behind the sound:
Lynn Olagundoye has gained the reputation of being one of Calgary's finest R&B and Soul singers. With her uniquely rich and powerful voice, she weaves beautifully simple melodies through genuine and deep-felt lyrics.
