CR Avery on stage at the arts centre Friday

The ever-popular Safety Meeting concert series is presenting a pre-season concert Friday with CR Avery and High Society.

The ever-popular Safety Meeting concert series is about to start up again, giving us all an excuse to get out of the house over the winter.

In the month of October we have two pre-season warm-up meetings at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.

Friday, Oct. 21 CR Avery is returning to the Safety Meeting concert series, with special guest Eliza Mary Doyle opening the night.

CR Avery is the unofficial East Vancouver poet laureate, heralded for his beatboxing, keyboard, harmonica, and spoken word stylings.

For this tour he has members of High Society joining him on stage.

There are not a lot of artists we’ll go out of our way to organize off-season Safety Meetings for, but CR is definitely one of them.

Eliza Mary Doyle took a year off from her normal grown-up life teaching in Swift Current to refine her musical chops in Nashville.

It seems to have paid off.

Eliza has a classic sound that can maybe only be achieved if you learn it right from the source.

She alternates between banjo, guitar, and dobro, while singing charmingly old-timey lyrics.

Her sound has earned her a finalist position in CBC’s Searchlight Canada, and the winning spot on Bell Media’s The Next Big Thing.

The following week, on Friday, Oct. 28, we have the often requested Twin Peaks to join the Safety Meeting lineup.

This duo of Lindsay Pratt and Naomi Shore have won the hearts of Canadians through extensive touring, and frequent nods from the CBC.

Brimming with endearing sincerity and hilarity, Twin Peaks has racked up awards such as a West Coast Music Award for Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year, and a Vancouver Island Music Award for BC Wide Artist of the Year.

Tickets for both Safety Meeting concerts are available now at Red Shreds Bike and Board Shed for $15.

Both shows are at the Central Cariboo Arts Centre, 90 Fourth Avenue North. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and shows start at 8 p.m.

For the Twin Peaks show on Oct. 28, we’ve paired up with the Potato House in support of their Twisted Alice Halloween Party.

Get entry to both events on the Oct. 28 for just $20, and party the night away at the Potato House after the Safety Meeting wraps up.
