SUNDAY AT THE INTERURBAN for 12th Annual Downtown Eastside Heart of the City Festival 2015 in Vancouver on Nov 1 2015
SUNDAY AT THE INTERURBAN
Sunday November 1, 12:45pm to 4:30pm
InterUrban Gallery, 1 E. Hastings, entrance on Carrall
Come to the InterUrban for a wonderful afternoon of music from some of the communities’ favourite performers.
12:45pm Michael Edwards, a stalwart at Oppenheimer Park, opens the show with original and alternative folk rock in a bluesy-jazzy mix.
1pm Rose Shraa Ttha Siccama and David Stone of RedSoulBluez take the mic. Rose, a Northern Tutchone singer, songwriter, musician, poet and artist, has been creating and living on Coast Salish Territory, aka Vancouver, BC for over 20 years and David is a multi-award winning, platinum and gold recording artist and musical wizard.
2:15pm we welcome Beaver T and the Divas; that is Beaver Thomas, a fabulous Cree guitarist who grew up playing at Carnegie and has been a professional musician since he was old enough to be on the road, with local singer/musician Murray Black, and Peggy Wilson, everyone’s favourite bass player and harmonic vocalist. We look forward to a set of classic country, rock, blues, jazz and more.
3:45pm Orkestar Slivovica will cap the afternoon in the InterUrban. The Balkan Brass ensemble plays and sings a diverse repertoire, from insanely fast dance tunes to heartwrenching songs, often in crooked rhythms and exotic scales. Sure to be an exciting afternoon!
This event was on Day 5 of the 12 Days of the Heart of the City Festival. Please check the website for more events!
