Bee Wolf Ray playing at Zocalo

The coffeehouse format is intimate, listenable and conversational performance; Bee’s music fits like a glove.

As part of the Zocalo series of Coffeehouse Thursdays, Bee Wolf Ray’s regular show on the first Thursday of the month happens this week.

Accompanying her will be Peter Cloud Panjoyah, on vocal harmony and percussion, and Jack Sigurdson on tasty guitar. The coffeehouse format is intimate, listenable and conversational performance; Bee’s music fits like a glove.

Her songs tell stories with surprising lyrical twists that lead to unexpected conclusions. Folksy yet rocking, Bee takes you on a journey through the world of songwriter music.

She mostly features her own well-crafted creations but includes selections by eclectic others; this month’s cover choices feature tunes by Leonard Cohen, Simon and Garfunkel, Steve Earle and the Talking Heads.

Bee lives part-time in Courtenay and part-time on Hornby Island. Her music has a unique raw, sweet sound with a soft edge of pleasurable intimacy. Her songs are presented with catchy, sophisticated melodies and unusual, interesting chord progressions.

Having grown up in northern B.C. without electricity and plenty of homegrown music, Bee’s roots are real and reliable. Her songs emerge from her personal journey and her keen observations of the human condition. Her songs deal with the various paradoxes we all deal with; there is something for everyone here.

Entrancing melodies, engaging stories, unusual yet inevitable chord progressions and a down-to-earth, friendly personality give Bee that ineffable “something different.”

Come to the Zocalo on April 4 at 6:30 p.m. for an auditory and gustatory treat.

Show is by donation; drop something in the hat to support local music.
