Here are some things that kept us busy during the pandemic! (also check the "Sideline Project"page)
"Stay at home" tunes!
We are staying at home but we still want to perform for the public, so we are making music on our porch and sharing it here! Here are a couple of starter videos from our solitude to yours..
2020 Current Events:
Well, we managed to get away from the house and perform for an outdoor crowd of completely distanced (physically, that is) people in beautiful Tofino! The weather was perfect, and so was the hospitality. Thanks to Cindy, Luke and Lee of the "Gust of Wind Street Animation Project" for welcoming and helping with setup. Thanks to the Common Loaf Bake Shop for offering storage for our gear, and coffee, and breakfast sandwiches, and sweets- yum! Much thanks to Maureen Fraser for once again boating us out to stay on Wickaninnish Island at her cabin perched on the edge of the beautiful waters.
Here are some pics from the trip:
2020 Pandemic Events (Art in the Garden Video)
We were so disappointed that North Van Arts "Art in the Garden" had to be postponed this year- it is a fun time to meet artists , gardeners, and folks from North and West Van. But wait! They are embracing the new normal with an innovative plan. Here it is and we are involved!
"Due to current risks brought on by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) North Van Arts are transforming Art in the Garden 2020 into an online platform to provide artists and musicians the opportunity to reach out to their audiences in this disconnected and uncertain time. The virtual event will feature 3-minute videos of musicians performing and artists doing demonstrations of their practice throughout the month of May from the comfort of their own balconies/gardens/homes. Videos will be available to view on the North Van Arts website.
Show your love for local artists by following @NorthVanArts on social media or visit northvanarts.ca. And be sure to check out the Art in the Garden live-stream on May 30 and 31 on Instagram."
