Local musician Bee Wolf Ray coming to Zocalo

Every first Thursday of the month at the Zocalo Café, Bee Wolf Ray takes you on a journey through the world of songwriter music

Every first Thursday of the month at the Zocalo Café, Bee Wolf Ray takes you on a journey through the world of songwriter music.

She features her own well-crafted creations but includes selections by eclectic others; no show would be complete without at least one cover tune by Leonard Cohen.

Bee lives part-time in Courtenay and part-time on Hornby Island, a balance that feeds her soul and fuels her songwriting. Her music has a unique raw, sweet sound with a soft edge of pleasurable intimacy.

Having grown up in northern B.C. without electricity and plenty of homegrown music, Bee’s roots are real and reliable. Her relationship with music has grown from a childhood bathed in music and song; the absence of electricity placed music front and centre in local culture, and a poetic sensibility that demands that difficult issues be resolved and transformed through song.

Enjoy an evening relaxing and enjoying Chef Peter’s delicious creations at the Zocalo Aug. 1 from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m.

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

— Bee Wolf Ray
