For the Twilight Jazz Series, she will be joined by music partner of 15 years, acclaimed Toronto (originally from Hamilton) jazz guitarist Margaret Stowe performing an eclectic, soulful and even quirky mix of repertoire. David Kidney of Green Man Reviews, Hamilton, ON wrote: "Brenda & Marg work together like a finely-tuned machine." Together and separately they are longtime favourites with their loyal audiences. Harry Currie, Waterloo Record wrote: "Guitarist Stowe is simply, amazing. She plays long fluid lines that never seem to stop, the ideas pouring out of her in an uninterrupted flow. ... At times as gentle as Bickert, she turns around and lets fly with the energy of George Benson, but always with accuracy and so, so tasteful." And of Lewis, Lesley Mitchell-Clarke of The WholeNote wrote: "Her adept jazz sensibility (as well as her variegated alto voice) is beautifully displayed. Lewis is refreshingly fearless, committed and transparent in her approach and taste; her consummate vocal skill shines throughout."
