West Coast Lines: Music and Poetry

August 9 (Thursday)
3:00pm - 4:00pm

Join renowned poet Trevor Carolan and talented singer/guitarists Zachary Keely and Marlowe Ferris for a special event. They will share spoken word favourites combined with songs and cool breezy sounds for a summer's day at Ambleside waterfront's glorious Silk Purse Arts Centre. Think Leonard Cohen, Bob Marley, W.B. Yeats and original West Coast poetic images! The program is suitable for all ages.

One of Canada’s veteran poets and authors, Trevor Carolan is renowned for his public readings with musicians and artists. He performs internationally, has published 19 books and produced two films. Always a crowd-pleaser, he teaches English and writing at the University of the Fraser Valley.

Marlowe Ferris is a singer/songwriter and crackling guitar and banjo picker who plays in the style of Bob Dylan, Luke Kelly and Buddy Guy. He performs widely out of White Rock, BC.

Zachary Keely is a guitarist and Irish-inflected vocalist with acclaimed Fraser Valley rockers Little Wild and local pop festival favourites, Casinos.
