Carolyn Mark will be playing at the Kayu’s Cafe in Winlaw on Friday, May 9, beginning at 8 p.m. She is currently touring in support of her latest music project The Queen of Vancouver Island.

Outspoken and  direct, Mark’s has been a favourite in the Slocan Valley for many years. Her music can be bright and sharp edged on an up-tempo song, or can slow right down so you feel each jagged beat of your breaking heart on her ballads.

She plays a unique blend of country alt-twang  which is so authentic it seems to come with its own direct link to Loretta Lynn's '60s heyday. Earlier on in her career she was a member of the popular Corn Sisters with Neko Case and has since gone on to release seven albums and performed extensively.

Kayu’s Cafe is located on Highway 6 in Winlaw. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 226-7374. To find out other upcoming shows visit kayuscafe.ca.
