Celebrating the creative spirit through music
On Sunday, Nov. 4, the Centre for Spiritual Living in Campbell River will be presenting a special live musical presentation by Noelle Maffin, and Nathan Aswell.
Maffin and Aswell have each performed to the centre’s enthusiastic audiences previously; this is the first time they will share the stage. Titled Sewing Seeds of Creativity, the event begins with a meditation at 10 o’clock, and continues with a musical service from 10:30-12 noon at the Willow Point Hall, 2165 S Isl. Hwy. All are welcome to attend.
Maffin went to school for voice and got her diploma from Grant Mac Ewan College in the Performing Arts. She started singing professionally after graduation and has performed in NYC, Vancouver, Edmonton and up and down Vancouver Island. One of Noelle’s great passions is singing jazz music. You can hear her perform at local venues with her jazz trio. More recently, Maffin has been delving into the “New Thought” genre, exploring the power and meaning of Spirit.
Aswell believes that his calling in this life is to inspire and heal through his heart-centered music making. His debut CD, Little By Little, and his new EP, I Say Yes, are powerful realizations of this calling, fully intertwining his two passions of music and spirituality. He honours his calling by performing at faith-based conferences, church services, kirtans (devotional chanting events) and house concerts in both Canada and the United States, presenting his “Conscious Pop” music with his voice and the NS Stick (an eight-stringed electronic instrument that can be plucked like a bass, strummed like a guitar, or tapped with both hands like a piano).
Aswell is a proud supporter of Seva Canada, whose mission is to restore sight and prevent blindness in the developing world. (Aswell donates 10 per cent of all performance fees, and $1 from every CD and DVD sale, to Seva Canada.)
