The First Thursday concert series with Bee Wolf Ray this month at the Zocalo Café features special guest Peter Cloud Panjoyah.
He will lend his vocal and percussion skills to Bee’s Christmas show as well as Jack Sigurdson on lead guitar.
“The Christmas show is my favourite,” Bee says. “I’ve written a couple of Christmas songs myself and I keep adding to my repertoire of interesting and unusual Christmas material for grownups.”
Bee lives part-time in Courtenay and part-time on Hornby Island; this gives a unique perspective to her music, which has a raw, sweet sound with a soft edge of pleasurable intimacy. Her songs tell fully realized, insightful and often surprising stories, presented with catchy, sophisticated melodies and unusual, interesting chord progressions.
“Bee’s singer songwriter sound is sweet with an gutsy edge that sounds like it’s come straight from the Juno movie soundtrack,” says Helen Austin, founder of the Comox Valley Singer-Songwriter Circle of which Bee is a member.
These shows are by donation. Every first Thursday of the month, stay tuned for an enjoyable evening of intimate singer-songwriter music while you enjoy delicious food and drink at the Zocalo.
