Sunday 23 February: Gathering Sparks Sing-Along Soiree: Tributing Pete Seeger

7:30pm, FREE/pwyc

Gathering Sparks, who host a monthly sing-along concert at the Tranzac, will be honouring the music of Pete Seeger on Sunday February 23, 2014.

The concert will be a mix of Pete Seeger original songs, traditional songs that Pete helped to spread around the world, and Gathering Sparks songs with easy-to-sing choruses. Come on out and add your voice to the chorus!

GATHERING SPARKS is the graceful collision of Eve Goldberg, Jane Lewis, and Sam Turton—musical friends weaving a textured folk/roots tapestry of finely tuned songs. With contrasting vocals, rich harmonies, and varied instrumentation (acoustic guitars, resonator slide, piano, accordion, ukulele, banjo, percussion and more), Gathering Sparks will touch your heart, move your feet, and get you singing along.”

23 January – 1 February: Nags Players Present: The Princess and the Pea
January 20th, 2014 by admin

23 January – 1 February: NAGS PLAYERS PRESENT: THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA
Thurs, Fri & Sat, 7pm doors
+ Saturday matinee, 1pm doors

The Princess and the Pea is a traditional English pantomime with all the good guys, bad guys, animals and vegetables you’d expect. Prince Rupert, heir apparent to the kingdom, must marry to keep his evil uncle off the throne. The catch is, he must marry a princess, even if she isn’t his true love. He finds his true love in Miranda, a commoner. Or is she? Will Rupert forsake the kingdom for true love? Or will he rise to his duty and give up the girl of his dreams?
