HOME ROUTES

Hi everyone,

The next Home Routes concert is at our place (230 Schultz Street, Baldur) on Friday, Nov 24 with Tim Williams.

As per usual, admission is $20, concert starts at 7:30 pm, but feel free to arrive earlier.

For the best and most complete information regarding Tim and his music, I encourage you to check out his website at https://www.cayusemusic.com/ , but here's a couple of quotes from the site.

"Imagine, if you can, a front porch where Robert Johnson, Hank Williams, Hula Hattie, Flaco Jimenez and Bob Marley meet often and discover just how much they have in common.  Tim's music would fit right in."

"Tim Williams is a blues-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. He is a 40 year veteran of the 'Roots' music scene in North America, roots which stretch back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the mid 60's.

Settling in Canada in 1970, Tim is a studio musician, producer, and a performer in constant demand. He has played Folk / Blues / Jazz festivals and concert halls and clubs from Halifax, to Vancouver Island, to the Yukon.

Inspired by the Hillbilly and Western Swing music he heard as a child, Tim absorbed late Fifties Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll, Hawaiian and Mexican music, early Sixties Folk, and Bluegrass “like a sponge” before discovering a passion for traditional blues styles which was fueled by seeing many first generation blues musicians live during the “Blues Boom” of the mid and late Sixties."

I have been listening to his 2015 album "So Low" (Solo), and as a long time lover of Blues, I am really looking forward to hearing Tim play live.  He is an accomplished guitarist and performer who has won many awards and has shared the stage with some of today's best known artists.

A Prairie Boy's Life

 September 19th       7:00 pm at Baldur Hall

I am thrilled to be hosting some of my greatest mentors in concert and invite you all to attend!

The music, composed by the renowned Manitoba composer John Greer, is based on the children's books - A Prairie Boy's Summer and A Prairie Boy's Winter by William Kurelek.  The performers include the composer himself - John Greer- alongside Laura Loewen at the piano and a vocal ensemble of Tracy Dahl, Monica Huisman, Rosemarie VanDerHooft, James McLennan, and Mel Braun!!  It would take all day to tell you how amazingly talented these 7  Manitoba performers are and how blessed we are to have them grace our stage...  

Locally - some of you may have heard Laura Loewen and Mel Braun in concert at my house in 2014 and Rosemarie VanDerHooft was the vocal adjudicator at our 2017 Tiger Hills Festival of the Arts in Baldur.  

See details in the poster below and share this with everyone you know!  Feel free to print and post the poster out and about your area!  I appreciate your help in promoting this incredible musical event!

Sincerely,

Karen Plaitin Gillis
