Sigurdson, Wings host double CD release party

Saturday, Dec. 12 at the Mex Pub

There will be a double CD release concert on Saturday, Dec. 12 at the Mex Pub, celebrating Jack Sigurdson’s new album Journey On Forever, and Small Cafe with Judy and Bruce Wing. Joined by Mark Wing, Blaine Dunaway, and other musical friends, the evening will be a fun collaboration of local musicians who contributed to the making of these projects.

Jack Sigurdson started playing guitar at the age of 15 and started writing songs as soon as he could play a couple of chords. Over the years, he has written many songs that reflect the different tastes and styles he has played. His perceptive and unique take on the world and the influence of the many performers he has seen or met in his life make his music hard to define in any one genre. Sigurdson’s raw rhythmic voice and strong lyrics keep your toes tapping. Journey On Forever is his second album, featuring 14 tracks of original music including songs co-written by Corinne Parker. Recorded at Dove Creek Studios, this album features a variety of instrumentation and styles. Sigurdson and friends will be performing songs from this new album for the first set of the evening.

The second set of the evening will feature Judy and Buce Wing, joined by Mark Wing on bass and violinist Blaine Dunaway. Small Cafe is the Wings’ fourth album, and includes versions of Joni Mitchell’s This Flight Tonight and Cyndi Lauper’s song Time After Time.

The Wings are hosts of two local open mics as well as the 1st Tuesday Fundraisers Concert Series now in its eighth season. They were awarded Roots Song of the Year in 2014 for their song “Miss Your Exit” and nominated in the pop/rock category for their song Lucky Lucky You at the Vancouver Island Music Awards.

The third set will feature a collaborative set revisiting songs from Sigurdson’s first CD “Found her In A Phone Book” and favourites from previous albums by the Wings.Tickets are $10 at the door with music starting at 8 p.m. For more information visit jacksigurdson.com or judyandbruce.com
