Steven Page, former lead-singer for the Barenaked Ladies, known for his heart-felt lyrics and up-beat song writing, performs on Quadra Island, Sat., March 10 at 8 p.m. at the Quadra Community Centre.
Since re-directing his career in 2009, he has been playing solo acoustic shows and recording with a variety of guests and musical collaborators.
Last August, he had the honour of singing at Jack Layton’s funeral. Page continues to compose new material for himself, as recently recorded on his first solo album “Page One,” and for several stage productions at the Stratford Festival.
Joining Page on the Quadra Community Centre stage will be his long-time friend and co-writer, singer-songwriter and guitarist, Craig Northey.
Northey was a founding member and one of the principal songwriters of the Vancouver alternative rock band the Odds. Northey has written/co-written musical scores for movies such as “Brain Candy” and “Dog Park,” and themes for several television series, including “Kids in the Hall,” and “Corner Gas.” Twice in the ’90s, Northey was nominated as songwriter of the year. His first solo album “Giddy Up” was released in 2003.
Tickets are $20 advance at Hummingbird Office and Art Supply in Quathiaski Cove, and at the Music Plant in Campbell River.
