UPCOMING COMMUNITY SOCIAL EVENT DETAILS

 

Thu, Dec 7th, 7-9pm, Concert – Ryan McMahon Solo – as rock as folk can get before it starts to roll – indie/folk

He’s always been a genre fence sitter, hanging out on the edges of country just enough to say he isn’t; Ryan is both a whisper and a scream.  “Ryan sings to anyone and everyone who has ever got drunk, smoked, cried, loved or been loved,” says producer Andre Wahl (Hawksley Workman, Luke Doucet).    

Legendary Canadian TV/Radio personality Terry David Mulligan may have summed up Ryan best: “The complete package.  Singer.  Songwriter.  Performer.  Troublemaker.  Passionate human being.  For me… priceless.”   

He has shared the stage with an extremely wide-variety of artists, ranging from Lisa Loeb & Buffy Ste. Marie to Nickelback & Mother Mother.  He’s had the honour of participating in JunoFest, the Western Canadian Music Awards, Canadian Music Week, Music West, Americana Fest (Nashville), Folk Alliance International (Kansas City) and various other notable Canadian Music Festivals, including 3 wins (Male Vocalist, Record & Artist of the Year) out of 5 nominations at the Vancouver Island Music Awards in 2012. 
In April of 2014, Showtime’s original series, “Californication” featured the single “I’ll Be Damned,” a song that was included on “Put Me Back Together,” which came out April of ’15.  On September 8th, 2017, Ryan released a home-recorded EP titled “Song Shelter Recordings,” created entirely at his home studio in Ladysmith, British Columbia.

Fri, Dec 8th, 12noon, Presentation: GE-Free Community, by Arzeena Hamir, Comox Valley farmer & soil scientist

Arzeena will speak about Genetically-Engineered Food cultivation and its impact on local food sovereignty both locally and globally.

Arzeena’s has been leading the charge to emulate many European Union members in declaring areas GE-Free zones and was instrumental in getting the Council of Richmond – one of BC’s largest agricultural regions – to declare itself GE-Free. Many areas across BC have followed suit, including Victoria, Metchosin, and the Kootaneys. Can we do the same? Do we need to? Declaring our region to be GE-Free could provide unique economic opportunities for our communities, beyond preserving the integrity of our environment. Come and join us for a stimulating lecture and discussion.  Bring a lunch. Coffee provided.  Suggested $5 donation

Wed, Dec 20th, 7-9pm, Concert – Juno Nominated Micah Barnes (of The Nylons) “Christmas in New York”

This Holiday season let Micah Barnes take you on a musical tour through New York City!  Micah's new show "Christmas in New York" includes favorite holiday tunes, Nylons classics and Jazz standards that pay tribute to the musical history of New York!  Come visit legendary musical landmarks such as The Brill Building, The Savoy Ballroom, The Cotton Club, The Apollo Theatre, and Broadway's Time Square with songs that will give you that “Holiday in The Big Apple” experience! 

New York has long been an inspiration to musicians in the Jazz world so it's no surprise that when Micah began writing his latest disc "New York Stories" while living in the Big Apple he found the energy and the musical history of the city deeply inspiring. Living in an apartment right on the site of the legendary Savoy Ballroom and writing in a piano studio near Time Square, Micah found a deep connection to the Jazz and Blues standards written in the 30's and 40's, by folks such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Howard Arlen, many of which debuted at The Cotton Club or in Broadway shows. The creative explosion of Doo Wop and early R & B written and produced at The Brill Building and heard at The Apollo Theatre was also a huge influence on Micah as he composed the romantic songs that make up his chart topping eOne Music release "New York Stories"   https://www.facebook.com/events/1126592540805331/
