The Tidemark Theatre begins its second season of the “Tidemark Lounge” tomorrow.
The “Tidemark Lounge” showcases local and emerging artists, and runs select Thursdays in the fall from 7-9 p.m. Last year the Tidemark Theatre Society began presenting artists in the lobby, and the series was so popular, the local non-profit decided to bring the series back for another year.
Admission to the Tidemark Lounge is a suggested $10 donation at the door, and a 100 per cent of the proceeds collected at the door go back to the artist. The Tidemark Theatre has donated the space and staffing costs for this event.
This week the Tidemark Lounge will feature Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson, who shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and a magical way with melodies. A regular on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song Rail, Reid’s original recordings Staring Contest and The Unavoidable Truth features guests Sarah Harmer, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Bob Eagan (Wilco, Blue Rodeo), John Sheard (Celine Dion, Dan Hill) and Anne Lindsay (Jim Cuddy Band, Blue Rodeo).
