Starman – A (mostly) acoustic evening of David Bowie songs at the Tidemark

Join an inspired, diverse group of Canadian singers/musicians as they celebrate the songs of David Bowie in a in-the-round concert performance at the Tidemark Theatre.

Bowie, of course, is one of the most influential artists in the history of modern music.

“There’s not many modern musicians who haven’t been touched by Bowie in one way or another,” says the shows musical producer, Doug Cox. “As soon as the word got out we were doing this show, musicians started getting in touch to see if they could participate – it’s been quite amazing to see the interest!”

Cox adds, “These in-the-round shows are a blast for the musicians involved and the audience. It’s like a modern variety show where each person in the group gets to take a turn stepping up front for a couple of songs and then, stepping back to be a supporting band member. The audience loves it because they get a taste of what each person on stage does and at the same time, they get to watch the musicians enjoy each other in a show that isn’t part of their normal touring activity. And – after all, it’s David Bowie songs; what an incredible catalogue to choose from!”

The talent line up for the show includes:  Doug Cox, Helen Austin, Linda McRae, Rick May, Robin Layne, Same Hurrie and Shaun Verreault (of Wide Mouth Mason)
