Marin Patenaude and Follow Through kick off new concert season

At last, Arts on the Fly is extremely excited to announce the lineup for our 2017 Safety Meeting concert series.

At last, Arts on the Fly is extremely excited to announce the lineup for our 2017 Safety Meeting concert series.

After two extremely successful seasons, we’ve brought back a few veteran performers, and lined up a few exciting new additions.

The 2017 schedule is as follows.

January 13 and 14: Marin Patenaude and the Follow Through with guest Kym Gouchie.

January 27: Andrew Judah with guest Rowan Dolighan.

February 10: The Staggers and Jaggs with guests Samson’s Delilah.

March 3 and 4: Wooden Horsemen with guest Malcolm Jack.

March 17: Jasper Sloan Yip with guests Frontal Lobotomy.

April 7: The Pack AD with guests The Sam Tudor Dream Band.

We will kick off the season on January 13 and 14, with two nights of Marin Patenaude and the Follow Through, with special guest Kym Gouchie.

Marin is no stranger to the Cariboo.

Aside from being past president and a current artistic director of Arts on the Fly, she has won the hearts of the community as a musician and with her work at the Potato House.

This will be the first time her band The Follow Through has played to the hometown crowd of Williams Lake.

This is the same band that backed her up when she opened for Sarah McLachlan at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre earlier this year.

With or without the help of her band, Marin’s music is crushingly beautiful.

I can’t wait to hear this stellar group of musicians in the intimacy of the Central Cariboo Arts Centre.

Also returning to the series on January 13 and 14 is Kym Gouchie. Kym comes from the LheidliT’enneh Nation near Prince George.

She is a mother of four and grandmother of six.

Kym combines elements of traditional, folk, and country, and is nothing short of a force of nature.

Join Kym on the afternoon of Saturday Jan. 14 as well, for a Spirit Stone painting and story telling workshop at the arts centre.

It’s suggested $10-15 for the workshop; email to reserve your spot. We can’t wait to have Kym back in the neighbourhood. Tickets for the season kick-off Safety Meeting are suggested $20, and available at Red Shreds. Join the facebook group so you can be the first to know when tickets for each show go on sale:
