Bowen Island musicians a hit on islands

  • Feb. 28, 2005 6:00 p.m.

Submitted by Pat Carrie Smith-The QCI Arts Council hosted Moritz Behm, violinist, and Corbin Keep, cellist on the islands for concerts in Skidegate and Masset last weekend.
Both concerts played to audiences which overflowed their venues. Moritz and Corbin are accomplished musicians from Bowen Island, and played a program which was advertised as classical, but which in fact was a combination of classical, jazz/blues, celtic, and country/western, with renditions of pieces from Bach to Bruce Cockburn, mixed liberally with humour. Moritz played an amazing celtic violin, and Corbin kept the audience in rapt attention as he used his cello to produce not only cello music, but sounds of violin strings, guitar, and percussion. Both artists have recorded CDs.
The Arts Council has another concert series coming up over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend with an accomplished singer/songwriter from the Yukon, Steve Slade. Steve’s music spans the folk and jazz genres, performed with voice, guitar and harmonica. Three possible concerts are planned. Watch for details.
