Island natives making music from the heart

Expect uplifting, danceable, original music drawing on their Celtic, classical, folk, rock and bluegrass roots

Vancouver Island natives Tyler Carson (Impossible Bird, The Carsons) and Adam Dobres (Outlaw Social, The Wailin’ Jennys) have come together in their premier tour as a duo making music from the heart.

Violinist Carson began his career as a soloist with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra at age 13, and has been performing internationally ever since. Tyler’s recent solo work is a genre he calls “living music.”

Building on 25 years of study, he had a profound shift while recently traveling in India. There, he discovered how to receive music and play more directly from his heart, creating a profoundly transformative sound.

The music of his kindred musical spirit and lifelong friend, guitarist Adam Dobres’, has taken him around the world, most recently including the Royal Albert Hall opening for Mark Knopfler.

Expect uplifting, danceable, original music drawing on their Celtic, classical, folk, rock and bluegrass roots and be thrilled with the addition of Tyler’s full-time collaborator from Project ‘i’o, intuitive dancer Maya Houston.

Join these three artists this Friday as they perform with the spirit of inspiration, musically and visually, to create a world to explore together through sound and dance.
