Jam for Sam

Music Performance
Wednesday October 26, 7pm – 9:30pm
Carnegie Theatre, 401 Main
Last November the Downtown Eastside community lost the much beloved Carnegie Centre regular and music lover Sam Snobelen. In honour of Sam, the Festival invites music lovers to this evening of jazz, music improvisation and jamming. This evening features the Carnegie Jazz Band and their finger snappin’ hot music under the wonderful tutelage of multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger Brad Muirhead. We invite you to sing along as community favourite Mike Richter leads local musicians including John Cote to play classic songs that Sam loved and was inspired by. Other guests include Carnegie’s Elder-in-Residence Les Nelson who will welcome us to the evening and Joyce Morgan will play a favourite piano selection. Local charmer Lisa David will host and MC the evening. Refreshments!

    Exhibition to October 30
    from-buffalo-meat-bill-quinn-and-his-artworkThis powerful series of artwork by longtime DTES resident and First Nation elder Bill Quinn is the result of a lifetime of experience on the underside of colonialism. Bill’s collages make an unequivocal statement about the nature of imperialism and global capitalism and the impact these forces have had on the indigenous people of the world. Fifteen years ago Bill took an original approach to collage art, and began to transcribe his rich understanding of contemporary society into a visual discourse that layers tragedy and humour into this one-of-a-kind exploration of the journey – and the story – of buffalo meat to baloney. Today is an opportunity to share some time with Bill and his work.
