Marie_Avery_heavypedal_c.jpgMarie_Avery_heavypedal_tix.jpgSaturday October 15 at 8 pm. Heavy Pedal, an evening of piano, song and spectacle — a cabaret night of local female piano-playing singer-songwriters, showcasing original piano-based music, on Artword Artbar’s baby grand. Hosted by Marie Avery, and featuring Kori Pop, Deanna Wells (of Ophelia Syndrome), Sara Whynot (from Kitchener), and Annie Shaw. Each artist will highlight her own unique style of writing and piano-playing. Cover $10 advance through the performers, $15 at the door.
Here is host Marie Avery’s statement about her concept for the evening:
“HEAVY PEDAL: an evening of piano, song, and spectacle.
Heavy Pedal is neither a singer-songwriter show, nor piano recital. It isn’t ‘live music tonight’ at the bar, nor is this a night at the orchestra. It is a home for the writers and performers of original compositions that press the bounds of genera. It is a showcase of technical proficiency not always appreciated in ‘indie rock’, and creativity too wild to be welcome in conservatory halls. Read more…
