Fri, Mar 9th, 8-10pm, Concert – Lonnie G with special guest Nomadic Ivories Nathanael Schaeffer
Nathanael Schaeffer: A half decade ago, after a youth full of a love, hate musical journey of lessons, a series of life changing events led Nathanael to realize his life purpose. Since then he has shifted from inwardly developing as a being, with music in and out of focus, to being dedicated into giving his gift of music to the world. From the humbling streets, to remote forests and beaches, to the fanciest of keys; sharing with the homeless, those with stockpiles, and everyone in between; he moves forward, growing, hunting pianos with a guitar slung over his shoulder. Composing and performing, problem solving; how to step and thrive while truly dedicated to living an art form in todays society, he follows the path. A carefully sculpted trail of a nomad leaves a resonance. Rooted in raw, bare, homely foundations an infrastructure sprouts; a colourfully, textured vibration of medicine and imagination candy. www.nomadicivories.ca https://youtu.be/exuqHIO2cso
