Nautical concert Sunday

  • Jun. 1, 2009 10:00 a.m.

Submitted by Eliza Shane (for Gwaii Singers)–In honour of World Oceans Day, the Gwaii Singers are hosting an Oceans Alive concert of nautically-themed music at the Skidegate United Church Sunday night, June 7, at 7 pm. World Oceans Day is the Monday following, so we’ll be exploring the emotional and economic ramifications of our relationship with the oceans of the world through music. We have been practising hard to be able to present some new folk songs for this event, and are looking forward to hearing the contributions of other performers. Special guests will include the Haida Gwaii Singers from Skidegate with Nika Collinson and the children’s dance group with Jenny Cross, Tyler Crosby with his drum, the Crabapple Creek Electric Jug Band, pianist Taylor Hett, Donna and John performing a nautical segment from Tavern Theatre, Sean Muise, and Sandra Beggs with a couple of great original songs from her first-hand fishing experience. Please join us in this celebration of our ocean environment! Net admission donations will go to the Streamkeepers Society.
