Lonesome Ace Stringband plus Carolyn Mark

7:00 PM

The Salt Spring Folk Club presents a double bill on Monday January 29 at the Fulford Hall with The Lonesome Ace Stringband and Carolyn Mark.

The Lonesome Ace Stringband brings grit,skill and abandon to old time Appalachian folk songs and fiddle/banjo tunes. The members are Chris Coole on banjo, John Showman on fiddle and Max Heineman on bass.Together they bring a deep respect for the roots of the music, a keen sense of innovation to the performance and material and a passion for the sound that transcends both. Since their inception in 2008 they have developed the kind of instinctual rapport, that only comes from seasoned musicians logging many hundreds of playing hours together.


Carolyn Mark has performed solo and with many different bands over the years and now has a band of her own with Joel Fernandes on lead guitar and Terri Upton on standup bass. Carolyn  is a literate but accessible songwriter and lyrically has a clever turn of phrase and an endearing ability not to take herself too seriously.Her songs combine elements from 1950s country music with modern soft pop/folk. She is a powerful emotional singer and Carolyn’s gigs are also known for their off-balance candor and ribald humor as much as the homespun tunes.

Showtime is 7 pm with Doors at 6:15 and tickets are on sale at Salt Spring Books. Catering by Haidee Hart features delicious dinners and desserts.
