« Review of Blake CD in ISLE February Update »

Upcoming Gigs January 19th, 2009

In the coming week or so, I will be performing in three local Prince George venues:  On Saturday, January 24th, I’ll be the opening act at a benefit concert for Street Kids International, to be held at Art Space starting at 7:30PM.  This will be the perfect venue for a performance of Blake’s “London,” which is, after all, a protest song about the plight of 18th-century street kids in London (the “youthful harlot” and the young chimney sweeper).  Then at 7:30PM on Monday, January 26th, I’ll be performing a 35-minute solo set, as part of this year’s Coldsnap Festival, at the Starlight Lounge in the Ramada Inn, along with ”eclectic Indie folk artists” Ray Borque and John Rogers.  Finally, on Wednesday the 28th, Jeremy Stewart and I will be discussing the relationship between music and poetry, and performing original musical compositions, in an event entitled “Stanzas for Music: Poetry and Song from the Page to the Stage,” in the Weldwood Lecture theatre at the University of Northern British Columbia.  Since I generally perform only about ten times per year, it will be a pretty intense week musically speaking.  But I’m looking forward to it, and I plan to sing my heart out.
