The First Thursday concert series with Bee Wolf Ray continues this month, after missing January, ready for another year of informal musical treats at the Zocalo.

Stay tuned for a tribute to Pete Seeger, a brand new Leonard Cohen cover and much more.

Bee is a folk/indie singer and songwriter from Hornby Island who uses her natural facility with voice, words and images, melodies and chords to paint pictures both sweet and savage, to captivate the imagination and inspire thought and feeling.

Bee happily makes the journey to the Valley from Hornby to offer her voice and songs (and song interpretations). Her music has a raw, sweet sound with a soft edge of pleasurable intimacy.

Raised in the North with nothing but homegrown music, she feels like a missionary of song, drawn to contribute her unique voice to the modern musical conversation.

Her songs reflect her belief in universal values and speak creatively and humorously to themes like true love, the environment, feminism, the human condition and of course, revolution.

"You can't be too much for me, that would be a first/I'd rather drown than die of thirst."

Bob Marley, when asked, "What is music?" replied, "Music is lyrics." Come out to the Zocalo on Feb. 7, and you will hear lyrics. The show goes from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

There will be a hat to accept donations for the musician. Every first Thursday of the month, stay tuned for an enjoyable evening of intimate singer-songwriter music while you enjoy delicious food and drink at the Zocalo Café.
