What do Diemm and Tom have in common? The both call Kaslo home and they both write beautiful songs. You may know Diemm as the brilliantly introspective poet and harpist who played an absolutely transcendent show here last November. You know Tom as the guitarist and songwriter from Vancouver’s The Boom Booms. The two will play an acoustic evening of original compositions and collaborations.

Anna B and Andy T bring their great bands and beautiful voices for a great evening of acoustic music. Anna’s jazzy, folky repertoire is well-informed by her academic depth in ethnomusicology; but she plays straight from the heart. Andy writes and renders traditional-feeling Americana with great sensitivity, virtuosity, and creativity.
