Silver Screen Scoundrels coming

Music, laughs and silent films at Studio Live Jan. 29.

Award winning duo The Silver Screen Scoundrels are set to perform at Studio Live with Music, Laughs and Silent Films this Jan. 29.

The Scoundrels consist of Brandon Isaak from Whitehorse, Yukon on guitar, vocals, harmonica and drums and Keith Picot from Salt Spring Island on upright bass.

Brandon recently won a Maple Blues Award (the national blues awards) for Acoustic Artist of the Year and is nominated for Guitarist of the Year this year. (The 2016 Maple Blues Awards will be announced this month). Last year Isaak was nominated for Song Writer and Album of the Year.

Picot most recently received a MBA for Bass Player of the Year and is considered one of the top swing bass players around today.

Isaak and Picot put on an extremely entertaining multi media show combining world class original roots music with original silent films with lots of laughs throughout.

They have taken the old classic art form of silent movies and propelled it into the modern world. A must see show!

The Scoundrels will be performing at Studio Live on Friday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. Studio Live is an intimate venue with great ambiance and sound, located at 2679 Beaufort Ave., Cumberland.

Advance tickets are $20 and are available at Bop City Records, Courtenay, Blue Heron Books, Comox and Rider’s Pizza, Cumberland or $25 at the door.
