Event description

Description

His Folk Satire show will take place on Sat, October 19th at 7pm.

For the past 15 years or so, Jewish-Canadian accordion player/singer-songwriter/novelist Geoff Berner has travelled the world. He’s played in bars, cafes, festivals, and the occasional stadium. He’s performed in 17 countries, on national radio in 7 of them.

West coast Canada's premier folk activist and satirical original anthem writer - accordion toting Geoff Berner brings his analytical witty thoughts and observations through revised mainland European traditional folk music stylings, bringing back 100 year old melodies that have relevance in todays social political climate

“Cherish him, cherish him, for there really is no one like him. Fantastic.”
— Billy Bragg

“...his protagonists are based on real people, but they’re compound figures, not limited to a single source. More important is that his books chronicle a subculture that’s generally examined only fleetingly, in impermanent media such as radio shows and weekly magazines.”
— Georgia Straight
