Stephanie Cameron -- roots, folk & old country

Steph Cameron's music and lifestyle seem to echo another time and place. Think of the beatniks in the '50s, hitchhiking and hopping freight trains or perhaps a late '60s commune in northern California. Lyrically, Steph's songs dig deep, drawing upon the experiences and lessons learned from a fascinatingly nomadic and sometimes turbulent lifestyle. Cameron is a Saskatoon-raised singer and songwriter whose debut record was long-listed for the Polaris Prize in 2015.

Born in Saskatoon, she has since spent time living in East Vancouver, Vancouver Island, and the Kootenay region of B.C., as well as logging serious miles traversing the country. Cameron finds creative sustenance in living simply, for the last several years in cabins she has built herself. "My dog and I used to live in an 8 by 8 foot shanty I built in the bush on Vancouver Island. In the winter, when the rain would beat down on the tin roof, it sounded like a drum. I wrote ‘Goodbye Molly’ about the rhythm of the rain and the feeling of water rising all around me."

Many Quadra Islanders can doubtless relate to hearing music in the rhythm of rain on a roof. Hear Steph Cameron’s folk music-storytelling as her coastal tour lands her in the HBI Pub Monday October 16. No cover charge for this show, and it’s an early start: 8pm, perfect for a moody Monday evening.

Fall into Winter… the Quadra Children’s Centre Fundraiser

Islanders have many events which with to mark the shifting seasons; a classic is the Quadra Children’s Centre “Fall into Winter” fundraising evening.  This year’s event is stacked with talent: The Thieven Brothers, Duffy Frank and Dave Tolley are all performing, and a tasty two course dinner in Herons is also included in the ticket price. As well, there’s a silent auction with quality goods on offer.

The Fall into Winter event is Saturday October 14 in Herons at the Heriot Bay Inn. Fall into Winter is traditionally a charming evening of quality food, quality art and excellent music; this fundraising evening supports island children through high quality childcare. “It’s because of Quadra’s support that the Children’s Centre continues to be a beacon of quality childcare” stated Sarah Richardson, former board member.

Tickets for this great evening are $55; 36% of ticket goes directly to the Children’s Centre. Call the Inn to reserve seats: 250.285.3322.

Dinner Show with THE WILDS

dinner show with THE WILDS -- Holly Arntzen & Kevin Wright

The Wilds are Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright. The Wilds are "folk pop to rock your world".  The Wilds are performing at a dinner show in Herons, Saturday September 30. Seats are $45 and reservations are strongly recommended. (Call the Inn to save your seats: 250.285.3322).

The collaboration of Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright came as an unforeseen event. The two had been working alongside Holly’s late husband and songwriting partner Stephen Foster, in the Artist Response Team (ART), producing radio shows and school music programs, until Stephen’s untimely passing in 2005.

Times immediately changed. They were thrust into a songwriting and performing partnership that reflected the pair’s diverse musical backgrounds. With over 30 years as a folk/jazz performer, Holly has appeared at most major music festivals in Canada and has shared the stage with artists such as Bruce Cockburn, Stan Rogers and Herbie Hancock. Since the mid-80s, Kevin has been a pioneering member of the Victoria rock scene performing in seminal bands such as Armoros, Turk and the Rat (Rocktoria 1 winner) and After Dark.
There are a limited number of show-only seats available, call the Inn to inquire.
