Vinyl Cafe coming to The Sid

On stage in Courtenay Jan. 29

Stuart McLean

Stuart McLean’s hit radio show The Vinyl Cafe is now heard by over two million people each week. The show is broadcast on CBC Radio in Canada, on close to 100 public radio stations in the USA and around the world on Sirius Satellite Radio 169 and podcasts.

And it’s coming to The Sid Williams Theatre.

McLean and his soothing, story-telling voice will be on stage Jan. 29.

In addition to the popular Dave & Morley stories, the show also features live and recorded music by both up-and-coming and established Canadian musicians. Increasingly, it is becoming a place where Canadians go to find new, undiscovered talent.

The Vinyl Cafe Tour 2015 will feature two brand new Dave & Morley stories and live music. It will also celebrate the release of Stuart McLean’s new collection of stories on CD.

Tickets for the Sid Williams performance are $55 apiece, $35 for students 18 years old and under.

Call the Sid at 250-338-2430 for tickets, or purchase online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com
