Music & Spoken Word
Wednesday October 28, 6pm – 9:30pm
Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main
The Carnegie Theatre is one of the most heavily used community spaces in the Downtown Eastside. Recently funds were raised to make the theatre more accessible to community groups, and with the work completed, the Festival invites you to celebrate, mingle and socialize at an evening of music, jazz, spoken word, and musical improvisation. Refreshments!
6pm Something new this year! Musicians with the Carnegie Jazz Band are reconfiguring in multiple smaller Carnegie Jazz Combos, and will play a selection of jazz standards and original material, including new compositions by Brad Muirhead and a new song by Terry Hunter, Festival Artistic Producer.
7:30pm The Carnegie Jazz Band returns with their finger snappin’, toe tappin’ and head boppin’ hot music under the wonderful tutelage of multi-instrumentalist and composer Brad Muirhead.
8:30pm Special guests: Idverb with a kaleidoscopic collage of spoken word and music. Performed by Brad Muirhead, Lisa Miller (piano), Chris Kelly (electronics), with text by spoken-word artist Kedrick James. Guest community poets include Stephen Lytton, Muriel Marjorie Williams and Phoenix Winter who will join Idverb for performances completely new and original.
