Kent Fiddy and David Sinclair

Live at Fanny Bay Hall welcomes Fiddy and Sinclair

Mark Friday Nov. 10 on your calendar for a great show at the Fanny Bay Hall, with Juno, B.C. Country Music and Vancouver Island Music Award nominees Kent Fiddy and David Sinclair.

They are artists who weave the past and contemporary into a unique tapestry. Their material is pure Canadiana in the way the songs celebrate stories, events and people from sea to sea, and includes such well known numbers as Ripple Rock (B.C.), Ice Road (NWT), The Heart of the Country, (Prairies and Ontario), Farley on a Harley, (Maritimes) and Bob Bartlett (Nfld.).

David Sinclair’s brilliant solo songs and guitar compositions display his stellar musicianship, vocal ability and forty years of professional touring and recording experience. Together, with impeccable harmonies, they combine as an original mix of pop, Celtic, country and jazz-influenced roots.

This is Canadian roots music at its very best. These are authentic, well-crafted and unforgettable songs which come out of their experiences working and touring across Canada and elsewhere.

Kent Fiddy is a songwriter whose words and music touch the heart and soul of his listeners. His lyrics have been described as inspirational and poetic in the way they explore themes of love, loss, and redemption.

Once heard, they are never forgotten. David Sinclair is one of a select few virtuoso guitarists Canada has produced. His career reads like a ‘who’s who’ of studio and live performance, Sinclair is also a wonderful songwriter in his own right with a series of solo CDs both instrumental and lyric songs. He is acknowledged as being in a class of his own.

Fiddy and David played to a capacity crowd in Fanny Bay in 2014 and it’s great to welcome them back.

Tickets: $18 at Laughing Oyster Books, Courtenay, Weinberg’s Good Food in Buckley Bay, and Salish Sea Market in Bowser’
