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.
