Vancouver singer-songwriter Reid Jamieson, a regular performer on Vinyl Cafe, will bring his distinctive voice, therapeutic lyrics, and magical melodies to the Qualicum Acoustic Cafe (QAC) for an evening of entertainment Oct. 2.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for the show at Qualicum Beach Rotary House, 211 Fern Rd. West.
Winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (folk), he has recorded with Cowboy Junkies, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Sarah Harmer and various members of Blue Rodeo.
Jamieson can often be found performing as an entertaining duo with his saucy wife and songwriting partner Carolyn Victoria Mill. Along with the Lennon win, this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning first prize in the Pickin’ a Folk Star Contest. They just released their first album singing together titled Juniper’s Kitchen — it’s a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac, and all about the songs. Coming up, Jamieson will be releasing a much anticipated follow-up — The Presley Sessions Revisited — a tribute to the 50s-era greats, due out this fall.
While Williams and Mill will headline the night, the stage is open to all interested performers, in music, poetry, storytelling, comedy, dance, etc.
Each performer will be allowed up to 10 minutes for a routine. Please sign up in advance by contacting John and Joyce Beaton at email@example.com.
Tickets are $7 or $5 for open stage performers (free for kids), with a limit of four tickets per group.
