It’s the first Thursday in 2013 this week, which means Bee Wolf Ray will play at the Zocalo Café in Courtenay from 6:30 to 8:30.

This is part of a series of evenings featuring the music of one of Comox Valley’s best-kept secrets, Bee Wolf Ray.

On the first Thursday of the month, for the past four months, accompanied by Jack Sigurdson on lead guitar, Bee has shared an evolving repertoire of eclectic original and cover songs, by such diverse artists as Joni Mitchell, Johnny Horton, Leonard Cohen, Steve Earle, 4 Non Blondes and the Boomtown Rats.

Bee’s songwriting style comes from a folk storytelling tradition; it is worth listening closely to the lyrics, for every song is written or chosen for a purpose and has a point to make about life, spirituality, love, the state of the world, political and personal freedom, and more.

Sigurdson, who accompanies Bee at her Zocalo shows, is a fan of her music.

He says, “Bee’s songs are captivating and her free style playing is like no other. People see and feel what she sings. Her stories are vivid and true and people can’t help but relate. She really grows on you.”

Every first Thursday of the month, enjoy an evening of intimate singer-songwriter music with the delicious food and drink at the Zocalo Café. These shows are by donation.
