This month, the First Thursday concert series with Bee Wolf Ray will happen on the second Thursday (Nov. 8).
Jack Sigurdson (himself an able songwriter with a recent CD release) and Corinne Parker will sit in as usual on lead guitar and percussion at the Zocalo Café. Last month’s show was well received and enjoyable for all.
This month’s theme will be The Nightmare Before Christmas, featuring songs both dark and light, originals and covers. A couple of Christmas songs have found their way onto the set list, but it won’t be the usual holiday cheer.
Instead, Bee will cover Dar Williams’ The Christians and the Pagans, and include her own darkly themed Christmas Presence.
As always, new songs will be introduced, maintaining a core repertoire for those who enjoy getting to know the songs.
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.
Nathan Senner, founding member and sometime-host of the Comox Valley Singer-Songwriter Circle says, “Bee’s unique perspectives are woven into the very fabric of her songs — one listen and you’ll know she truly writes from her heart.”
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 Café.
