Let Lady Daisey Play Canadian Tour Dates sign now

Up-and-coming BBE Records soul artist Lady Daisey (http://www.daisey.com) has been denied entry to Canada by customs officials, who found copies of her recently-released CD "In My Pocket" in her luggage and determined she was about to start her Canadian tour: http://daisey.fanbridge.com/tourdates/.

Lady Daisey was to kick off her Canadian tour tomorrow night at Hermann's Jazz Club at 8 PM (http://www.hermannsjazz.com/pages/calendar.cfm), but customs officials have ordered her to return to the U.S. tomorrow on the first sailing of the Victoria Clipper back to Seattle.

Daisey's tour organizers have contacted the Canadian Office of the American Federation of Music in an attempt to expedite the temporary employment
authorization that Canada Customs officials require to permit her to enter the country as a US performing artist This paltry $25 bureaucratic
technicality that threatens to scrap her Canadian tour is far less than the tourism dollars generated by a single patron's entriace ticket and modest
bar tab at Hermann's.

I think that Canada Customs regulations preventing performing artists from touring North America without restrictions are not serving the citizens of either Canada or the United States and run contrary to the spirit and intended economic stimulus provided by a border-less sharing of culture and technology between like-minded nations of creative individuals.

For further details, please contact Lady Daisey's Canadian booking agent: Kevin Belanger (New Age Ventures, Inc.) at 250 589-0118.
