Jericho Folk Club – David Storey August 27

Jericho Folk Club 
Presents
David Storey
 
With a dynamic, 40 year career that has zig-zagged between music and broadcast production, for which he’s won numerous awards, songwriter David Storey, recharged and refocused is now poised to win new laurels in the musical realm where he began his journey.
 
A new album, made in Canada, continues the pattern established on two previous releases of wry wit and penetrating insights about life’s challenges, characters and passions. Delivered with both humor and poignance, it includes expressions of the life lessons he has learned riding the crests and troughs of fate, shared not with bitterness but simply as unearthed jewels he’s discovered.
 
An early musical career had seen him get airplay, rave reviews and award nominations for his Roots-Rock songs, which were compared to John Prine and Steve Earl. He then left music for less precarious work in the creative realm while raising a family for 20 years. At first directing videos and tv specials for the likes of Tom Cochrane, Stompin’ Tom Connors and Anne Murray, later gravitating into the comedic field, where he found acclaim developing, producing and directing the hit television show and movie “Corner Gas.”
 
Like his life since then his new songs reflect both sweet moments and poignant, biting obstacles. They weave a tapestry of highs, lows, insights and observations into a captivating journey through time, mind, soul and society. Wry wistfulness, revelatory humour and penetrating vision all coalesce in David Storey’s song catalogue to form a mosaic not unlike the land from which they arise.
 
Admission: $10
Doors: 7 pm – Acoustic Jam
Open Stage: 7:30 pm
Appetizer Set from Feature: 8:15 pm
Break: 8:30 – Acoustic Jam
Feature: 9 pm.

Vancouver SUP Challenge – Backpaddle

The annual Vancouver SUP Challenge was well attended last Saturday and included 2018 World SUP Champion Lincoln Dews. Thanks to event organizer Gary Parsons and his able crew (including the Jericho Rescue Team) for putting on another excellent event. Gary sent us this photo taken after a specialty heat: the biggest prone paddleboard race in Western Canada this century; and this week’s cover photo of the Men’s Sprint Final photo finish where Lincoln Dews was edged out by fellow Aussie Sam McCullough.

 

Thanks to photographer Lech Dolecki for this and our cover photo. We’ll include the link to Lech’s full gallery of the day’s photos once it is posted.
