open mic highlights

Here's a treat for our loyal audience. Many of them, because of heavy snow,  missed our excellent show featuring Walter Quinlan, with Dan Flukinger, keyboards; Neil Brun, bass; and Rob Gretsinger, percussion

open mic contest success

Congratulations to the winner of our January 2018 open mic contest: Giorgia                          Giorgia Lanzoni is a young, bubbly artist who mostly plays original songs on the piano and ukulele. She is working on expanding that list of instruments, as well as using her native language in her songwriting: Italian. Born in Italy, her family moved to the Cariboo in BC to manage a small resort and Italian restaurant. Here, her father built a small music room so he could record his own songs. Eventually, Giorgia followed in his footsteps, and began home-recording original songs from the age of 12. She is working really hard to turn her passion into a career, and is grateful for all of the opportunities she gets to perform (like the Barnhartvale Coffee House)

We look forward to hearing more from this talented singer-songwriter during our 2018-19 season

Check out Giorgia's website for lots more info and to hear many of her original songs! 

Huge thanks to Gerry David for providing us with some wonderful shots of      our open mic musicians from our October 21 coffee house...
