RCEA & The Ironworks Present: SONGS from the SOURCE

singer songwriters performing their own work

Date: May 22 Medium: Concert
Time: 8pm doors: 7:30 Tickets: $12/10


The RCEA (Railtown Cultural Enhancement Association) has revived this performing songwriter series, to be presented once a month

Each month three new songwriters will be presented performing their original music ‘in-the-round’ for 2 sets. This format, with all performers sharing the stage as they do at folk festival workshops, presents opportunities for spontaneous musical magic amongst the artists.

The series which was created by Astrid Sars, a musican and songwriter herself, had a very successful run back in 2003 showcasing a great variety of artists, in many different genres. She is excited to
start the tradition up again with presenting 3 compelling BC singer/songwriters monthly in this new 2008 series "Songs from the Source"

Beverley Elliott: works primarily as an actress in the film and TV industry, but is also an accomplished songwriter with a country/folk flair that can be heard on her CD Yellow Dress. She considers her greatest achievement to be her young daughter Sally.. www.augustmusic.net


Rae Armour:- "Rae Armour's voice and songs are a clear and confident expression of a life lived with sensitivity, guts, and integrity. This is classic music that goes straight to the point, moving from introspection to exultation without gimmick, trend or artifice. /www.raearmourmusic.com

Linda Kidder:One of Vancouver's favorites, Linda Kidder is a charismatic performer with the voice of an angel.... Linda performs with a 3 or more piece ensemble when performing her own original work.
