Event description

Description

Two folk-rock ensembles with common roots perform back-to-back. Victoria-based Big Speck (pictured), features singers Rosemary Jeffery and Cam Culham, both popular and busy stage-actors, and the diverse aural artistry of Laura Backstrom (cello), Kate Rhodes (violin), Doug Hensley (guitar/bass), Jon Miller (drums), and Mark Reed (piano). They will blend their theatre, classical, jazz, and rock backgrounds together to perform sci-fi-informed songs, written by Mark, that dare to present objective views of life on Earth. This concert will be Big Speck's debut.

Medderick and The Jokers and Prophets Band features songs written by lead vocalist Medderick and back-up vocalist Steve Gidora. However, Steve and the other two vocalists, the Jans (Janet Iggulden and Janice Sentell) step out and sing a few classic covers, but not your top 40, well maybe, depending on your point of view. This vocal extravaganza encompasses a rich and eclectic accompaniment provided by Medderick on acoustic and electric guitars, Steve on bass, mandolin, Irish bazouki and acoustic guitar, and Wayne Iggulden on all manner of keyboards including accordion and harmonica. This concert will be the Vancouver/Surrey-based group's final stop on a Vancouver Island mini-tour.

The two ensembles' common roots? Big Speck's Mark Reed and all of Medderick and The Jokers and Prophets Band were either members of or were closely associated with Bargain at Half the Price, a large collective of singers and musicians led by Steve Gidora in the Vancouver/Surrey area in the mid-seventies.
