Indian Dinner and Concert April 16

  • Apr. 5, 2005 5:00 p.m.

Submitted by Gerry Morigeau-The Living And Learning School is hosting a fundraising Indian dinner and concert at the Skidegate Hall on Saturday April 16. The evening begins when the doors open at 5:30 pm and a gourmet curry dinner prepared by Kiku Dhanwant and Barry Windecker will be served. If you have been to or heard about any of the past Indian feasts put on by Kiku and/or the school, you will not want to miss this special collaboration. Dinner guests will be invited to remain as the room is transformed back into a concert hall for a performance by Calgary-based recording artist Steve Pineo.
Steve Pineo is a multi-talented musician and songwriter. His songs have been recorded and performed by such popular Canadian acts as Russell DeCarle, Tim Williams and Willy MacCalder. Paul Brandt made Steve’s “Canadian Man” his signature song. Steve has been on several tours as an opening act for Jann Arden, as well as opening for a virtual who’s who of Canadian music.
Along with rock legend Billy Cowsill, Steve is a founding member of one of Calgary’s most successful independent acts, The Co-Dependents. He played mandolin with Big Sugar’s acoustic show, and rhythm guitar for the great Amos Garrett in his acoustic project.
Steve’s mastery of acoustic guitar and mandolin are immediately evident at his live shows. Combine this with witty and thoughtful lyrics, hummable melodies, a honey sweet baritone, and a great sense of humour and you’re in for a memorable evening of entertainment.
The doors open for the concert at 8:30 pm and the whole evening promises to be very memorable. Seating will be limited for the feast to 60 so it is strongly suggested you purchase tickets in advance, which are available at Hanging By a Fibre in Queen Charlotte and Dress for Les in Tlell. Advance tickets are also available for the concert only. Advance tickets for the dinner and concert are $35 and for the concert alone $12. At the door you’ll pay more.
Steve Pineo will also be performing in Masset at the Green Church on Friday April 15 at 8:30 pm. Tickets for this show will be available at the Masset library and the proceeds from the concession will go towards the Tidal Elements School.
