Folk musicians Caspi and Turner in Comox

Comox United Church Hall Sunday

Tony Turner and Shawna Caspi will bring their songs and their stories to the Comox United Church Hall (250 Beach Drive, Comox), Sunday evening.

With her third album, Apartments For Lovers, Shawna Caspi taps right into those folk roots, stripping away the session musicians and elaborate arrangements of her previous records in favour of a simple, authentic sound – her solo guitar and voice. The result is a collection of songs that is close-up and honest, showcasing her warm vocals, classically-trained fingerstyle guitar playing and intimate songwriting in a genuine, powerful way.

Caspi, who was born in Ottawa and now lives in Toronto, will showcase the beauty and power of those songs with another Ottawa folk musician who knows the power of a folk song. Tony Turner, who lives in Ottawa, gained national attention during the 2015 federal election campaign, when he released the political protest song “Harperman” and was suspended from his job as a federal government scientist two months after the song was posted on YouTube.

He chose to retire while the investigation into whether he breached the federal government’s values and ethics code for public servants was taking place. The song propelled Turner into the national spotlight and garnered him an international award.

The show, which starts at 7 p.m., is all-ages, and admission is $15 or pay what you can.
