Reid Jamieson, Saint September, Raven Zoe...8pm $10
Reid Jamieson shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and magical way with melodies. A regular on CBC/NPR's Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (folk), Reid has recorded with Sarah Harmer, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), various members of Blue Rodeo and John Sheard (Celine Dion, Matt Anderson). Reid recently took part in a special ensemble recording called 'The Kennedy Suite' with Cowboy Junkies, that was long listed for the Polaris Music Prize.
Reid can often be found performing as an entertaining duo with his saucy wife and long-time songwriting partner Carolyn Victoria Mill. Along with the Lennon win, this creative couple wrote their way into the Vancouver Folk Music Festival by winning 1st prize in the Pickin' a Folk Star Contest, and are finalists in multiple radio and song writing contests internationally. Together they have just released their first record singing on disc together - a country-soul flavoured album titled Juniper's Kitchen. Featuring Anne Lindsay (Blue Rodeo) on fiddle and Paul Rigby (Neko Case) on pedal steel, this radio-ready collection is a little Johnny & June meets Fleetwood Mac - and is all about the songs. A dozen radio-ready ditties - one for each year they have been together.
Known for his compelling covers of everything from Elvis to Mary Margaret O'Hara, there is little that Reid can't sing the heck out of. A male k.d. Lang or Roy Orbison's long lost son; the comparison's continue to come in but Reid remains uniquely himself. Don't miss what this tender troubadour does next!
