The Jessica Stuart Few band returns to its roots with a tour through B.C., showcasing new material for family, friends and fans of the band ahead of the release of a new album in the spring.

The jazz-influenced art-pop band performs downstairs at Acme Food Co. Monday (Aug. 8) at 7:30 p.m., featuring Few on the Japanese harp-like instrument, the koto.

The band’s latest project was recently picked up by television network Bravo.

The music video to the title track of the album Kid Dream features a collaborative technique called Lunamation, which is a form of rotoscope animation using carbon tracings of video stills.

More than 80 animators created more than 2,700 drawings used in the video.  Many of the animators were children and guitar students of Stuart’s.
