One Guitar. One Week. One Song. Six Songwriters.
The Acoustic Guitar Project is a global music platform and concert series, taking place in 50 cities around the world, that inspires musicians to write an original songs and record them in one week. One songwriter starts the cycle with Vancouver’s special guitar, writes a tune, and passes it off to the next artist when their week is up. The project culminates with all five songwriters coming together for a show to share their fresh works and stories behind them. This is that show.
DISNEY MATINEE: Benefit Concert for Music Heals
Sunday, 18 November 2018 | Doors at 13:00, Music from 13:30
Kids love the songs from Disney films. Adults love the songs from Disney films. Who else loves them? Musicians do! (You know musicians: they often look like adults, but are really kids.)
In this special matinee concert, local artists — including Julia Spitale, Shera Kelly, Michael Averill, Natalie Ramsay, and many others — have worked-up covers of their favourites. So come — and bring a kid or two with you!
This show is a benefit in support of Music Heals which raises money and awareness for music therapy programs. Consider giving generously, even if you cannot attend.

We love Citizen Jane. And we love the way songwriter, guitarist, mandolinist, and lead singer Reenie Perkovic and violinist extraordinaire Lea Kirstein describe their unique indie-folk sound: “Two parts daydream, one part grunge.” Their debut album, “In the Storm” has received excellent notices and their live performances display both polished, sophisticated musicianship and compelling, raw emotional resonances.
